Human skeletal muscle myoblasts stained for desmin (green) and DAPI (blue)
Clonetics™ Diabetic Type I and Type II Human Skeletal Muscle Myoblasts (HSMM) are isolated from donors diagnosed with either Diabetes Type I or Diabetes Type II. Additional donor information is available by contacting Scientific Support. Diseased cells are tested in the same SkGM™-2 Skeletal Muscle Growth Media as the normal cells allowing for easy comparisons between diseased and normal tissue. Both are sold in second passage.
Clonetics™ Diabetic Donor HSMMs are tested are guarenteed to differentiate to form multinucleated myotubes in culture which stain positive for desmin. 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 is provided for each cell lot purchased.
Recommended medium: Diabetic Donor HSMMs require SkGM™-2 BulletKit™
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
