NhIMDC: Normal Human Intestinal Myofibroblasts Descending Colon
Isolated from whole adult human intestines that are suitable for transplantation. The Myofibroblast are isolated from the descending colon.
The cell composition consists of a heterogeneous population of myofibroblasts distinctly from the above region and the cells are tested for viability, morphology, and attachment efficiency (by Crystal Violet). Myofibroblasts are characterized by immunofluorescent staining positive for alpha smooth muscle actin and negative for desmin.
Cells per vial: 800,000
Shipping Conditions: Dry Ice or LN2
Storage Conditions: LN2 Storage
Upon receipt, immediately transfer each cryovial into the vapor phase of a liquid nitrogen (LN2) storage Dewar. Cryopreserved human intestinal cells are viable for one year when stored under these conditions.
