Human prostate epithelial cells in PrEGM™ BulletKit™ seen under light microscopy
Most Clonetics™ Primary Cells are also available as proliferating cells in either flasks or plates, or as pellets in RNALater®.
Prostate cells provide a glandular function in the body by generating fluid which serves several functions in reproduction. Clonetics™ Human Prostate Cells are available from epithelial, smooth muscle, and stromal tissue. Each cell type has an optimized growth media for best results in culture.
Clonetics™ Prostate Epithelial Cells (PrEC) are guaranteed through 15 population doublings and stain positive for cytokeratin (clone 8.13). Cryopreserved PrEC are shipped in first or second passage.
Recommended medium: PrEGM™ BulletKit™
Clonetics™ Prostate Smooth Muscle Cells (PrSMC) are guaranteed through 10 population doublings and stain positive for alpha smooth muscle actin and negative for von Willebrand (Factor VIII) antigen. Cryopreserved PrSMC are shipped in second or third passage.
Recommended medium: SmGM™ BulletKit™
Clonetics™ Prostate Stromal Cells (PrSC) are guaranteed through 15 population doublings and stain positive for vimentin and negative for pan cytokeratin. Cryopreserved PrSC are shipped in third or fourth passage.
Recommended medium: SCGM™ BulletKit™
All cells test negative for mycoplasma, bacteria, yeast and fungi. HIV-1, hepatitis B and hepatitis C are not detected for all donors and/or cell lots. A Certificate of Analysis (CoA) is provided for each cell lot purchased.

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
