PromoCell offer a broad range of human primary cells, stem cells and blood cells, as well as optimized cell culture media. Scientists worldwide use PromoCell products in basic and applied biomedical research to obtain better results from more accurate physiological models. The reliability of our cells provides the basis for being able to offer you the high quality standards you need.

Human Stem and Blood Cells

PromoCell offers a collection of adult stem cells, as well as differentiated blood cells from normal human bone marrow, umbilical cord tissue, placenta, adipose tissue, peripheral blood, and cord blood. All cells are obtained from approved donor programs at associated medical centers. High-quality media that simulate the in vivo environment as well as optimized differentiation media systems are also available for these cell types.

Human Primary Cells

PromoCell offers a wide variety of high quality human primary cells. The tissue used for the isolation of these cells is obtained from approved medical centers following strict ethical standards. Shortly after isolation, the cells are cryopreserved using the unique serum-free PromoCell Cryo-SFM and an optimized, computer controlled freezing profile. This allows high viability of the cells and defined culture conditions after thawing.

All PromoCell primary cells are available cryopreserved or proliferating. Each cell lot is tested for cell type specific markers, cell morphology, population doubling time, and proliferation capacity. In addition, tests for the absence of HIV 1, HIV 2, HBV, HCV, fungi, mycoplasma, and other bacteria are performed. Moreover, cell pellets prepared from released cell lots and stored in RNAlater® are available. They are useful for DNA, RNA, and protein isolation and their subsequent analysis.

Cell Culture Medium

High-quality medium is vital for successful cell culture. Therefore, PromoCell adheres to strict quality standards and produces its medium only from raw materials from strictly approved sources. We also have invested a lot of effort in media optimization and have substituted serum by defined substances wherever possible. This ensures effective cell growth and avoids the unpredictable effects of indeterminate compounds.

Reagents and Supplements

PromoCell offers a broad range of reagents and supplements for cell culture. This includes enzyme mixtures for tissue and cell dissociation, buffers for daily cell culture work and components to supplement various culture media, such as cytokines and growth factors. All of these are intensively tested and meet our stringent quality criteria.

Microbial Detection, Elimination & Prevention

Cell culture contamination is a commonly occurring problem that affects many of the cell’s biochemical and immunological properties, and it leads to unsatisfactory and unreliable results. Therefore, regularly testing cell cultures for contamination with mycoplasmas or bacteria is essential. PromoKine provides highly sensitive and user-friendly test kits for this purpose as well as products for the effective elimination and prevention of mycoplasma and eubacteria contamination.
