Purified Immune Cells - Simply Thaw and Culture
The human immune system is a complex and intricate network of cells and
signaling pathways aimed at defending the body against the many pathogens
present in our environment.
To make things even more complex, studies are also providing insight into the intricacies of the intersections
between the immune system and diseases such as cancer, brain disorders, and cardiovascular
disease. Studying immunology and human disease in vitro requires not only willing donors, but also patience and
skill to isolate specific immune cell types.
Lonza's Poietics™ Human Immune Cells can
eliminate the hassles of finding donors and doing tedious cell isolations
– all you need to do is thaw and culture. Let Lonza simplify your life with
purified immune cells and optimized culture media.
Lonza offers a wide variety
of cells involved in the immune system including:
Each product contains cells from a single donor per ampoule (never pooled or mixed cells from different donors), and there are typically multiple donors available. Matched sets of two or more
different cell types from the same original donor may be available. Please
contact Scientific Support to inquire if matched sets are available.
Poietics™ Primary Human
Immune Cells are isolated from peripheral blood from healthy donors. Each donor
is tested and found non-reactive by an FDA approved method for the presence of
HIV-I, Hepatitis B Virus and Hepatitis C Virus. Where donor testing is not
possible, cell products are tested for the presence of viral nucleic acid from
HIV, Hepatitis B Virus, and Hepatitis C Virus. Poietics™ Primary Human Immune
Cells purity levels are verified via flow cytometric analysis.
Lonza guarantees the performance of Clonetics™/Poietics™ cells only if appropriate Clonetics™/Poietics™ media and reagents are used exclusively and the recommended storage and use protocols are followed. Any modifications made to the recommended cell systems including the use of alternative media, reagents, or protocols, will void cell and media performance guarantees. If you need assistance in selecting the appropriate media, reagents, or protocol, please contact Lonza Scientific Support.
