Human primary cells: more relevant than animal cells or immortalized cell lines
We provide our clients with customized projects to generate primary cells of value to your research programs. By using human cells, important physiological properties of the original tissue are retained and the prediction of human responses to drugs is superior to tests using immortalized cell lines or animal cells.
