Human Brain Microvascular Endothelial Cell or HBMECs Image

Culturing Protocol - T25 Flask 

HBMECs were isolated from normal human brain tissue. Passage 2, cells are ship on dry ice in a vial or in proliferating culture with a confluency of >90 %.  ENDO-Growth medium containing 5% serum and growth supplements are recommended for culture. Cells have an average additional population doubling levels >15 when cultured.

Image: Human Brain Microvascular Endothelial Cells in Culture.

Characterization of the cells
  • Cytoplasmic VWF / Factor VIII: >95% positive by immunofluorescence
  • Cytoplasmic uptake of Di-I-Ac-LDL: >95% positive by immunofluorescence
  • Cytoplasmic PECAM1 >95% positive by immunofluorescence 

HBMECs are negative for HIV-1, HBV, HCV, and mycoplasma.

Date of Expiration: Guaranteed for up to 6 months from date of shipping when stored in liquid nitrogen.
