When working with primary cells, it is important to remember that they are not cell lines and should be treated with care. At ScienCell, we specialize in primary cell culture… Read more »
Primary cells, which are isolated directly from tissue, show normal cell morphology and maintain many of the important markers and functions seen in vivo. Primary cells, though, have a finite lifespan and limited expansion capacity, so it is critical to use primary cells at low passage for your research.
Neuronal cell lines are commonly used for in vitro neurobiology studies because they are more easily transfected compared to primary neurons and they proliferate, whereas primary neurons do not. Neuronal… Read more »
Cancer is a collection of over 200 diseases where the only common denominator is rogue cells1,2. The ways in which a cell can go rogue is so varied that cancer… Read more »
After watching displays of astounding athletic prowess in the 2016 Olympics, I was inspired to take a closer look at the science behind exercise training, recovery, and injury with a… Read more »
Choosing which media to use with your primary cells can be daunting. Whether you are replicating a formula from a publication, optimizing your own supplemented classical or nutrient media, or… Read more »
For decades, researchers have been culturing cells to study normal and diseased biological processes. Many of these studies use immortalized cell lines which proliferate indefinitely in culture. Immortalized cells thrive… Read more »
