Clonetics™ aortic smooth muscle cells are isolated from human donors that have been diagnosed with diabetes type I or type II disease. Further donor information, including medications, BMI, and disease duration may be obtained by contacting Lonza scientific support. Diseased cells are grown in the same optimized media system as Clonetics™ normal human aortic smooth muscle cells.
Diabetic AoSMC cultures can be used for experimental applications in diabetic-related cardiovascular pharmaceutical development, vascular pathology, including atherosclerosis. Clonetics™ D-AoSMC diseased human aortic smooth muscle cells and media are convenient and easy to use, allowing the researcher to focus on results. Cryopreserved Clonetics™ AoSMC are shipped in third passage.
Proliferating Clonetics™ AoSMC are shipped in fourth passage. Clonetics™ cells, medium and reagents are quality tested together and guaranteed to give optimum performance as a complete cell system.
For proliferating cells and cell pellets in RNALater® contact Customer Service for order placement.
Quality Control Testing : Our normal and diseased AoSMC cultures are tested for cell performance in SmGM™-2 BulletKit™. Please see the supplemental tech sheet for specific quality tests performed.
