Streamline your metabolic and diabetes-related research by choosing from our convenient, innovative selection of tools that have been designed and tested for more relevant results in your research.


Primary Cells and Media

  • We offer a wide variety of cells and optimized media kits for metabolic research. Cells and media are tested together and guaranteed to perform.
  • Clonetics™ and Poietics™ primary human cells are available from normal and diabetes type I and II donors including:
  • Fresh human pancreatic islets 
  • Adipose-derived  stem cells 
  • Pre-adipocytes (visceral & subcutaneous)
  • Endothelial cells (large vessel & microvascular)
  • Epidermal keratinocytes
  • Renal cells
  • Smooth muscle cells
  • Skeletal muscle cells  



Nucleofector™  Transfection 

  • Transfection of primary cells and hard-to-transfect cell lines with up to 90% efficiency
  • High viability and maintenance of functionality
  • COMING SOON! Ready-to-use 4D-Nucleofector™ Protocols for primary pre-adipocytes and adipose-derived stem cells, and various metabolically relevant cell lines  



BioAssays for Cell Health and Function

    • AdipoLyze™ lipolysis assay is >3x more sensitive in detecting lipolysis levels in cell lines and primary cells than the leading assay method.
    • AdipoRed™ adipogenesis assay is a robust detection method for fat accumulation in vitro, more sensitive than Oil Red O method and faster than Northern and Western blots.
    • ToxiLight™ and ViaLight™ Assay Kits provide fast and sensitive methods for measuring cytotoxicity and cell proliferation.
