Another New Cell Type
Neuromics is always adding cell types and lines that offer researchers the prospect of advancing their research. This week, we're pleased to add some new cells that will surely draw the interest of diabetes researchers and others.
Neuromics has just introduced Insulin Secreting Human Fibroblast Pancreatic Islet Cells (cat. HPF002). These cells were derived from Human Pancreatic Islet Cells before being transformed with the ability to be passaged at least 5 times.
These cells perfectly complement the other tools we have available for diabetes researchers, including our endothelial cell types (especially our retinal), epithelial cells, and much more. We also have a section of antibodies and recombinant proteins with applications in diabetes research.

Free Shipping On FBS Through May
This month, Neuromics is offering free shipping on any order of 5 or more bottles of our Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS) products. There is no better time to get stocked up on FBS for your upcoming summer research projects.
Our diverse selection of already best-priced FBS options includes a number of grades for different applications along with specialty FBS including lipid-depleted, exosome free, and more. Furthermore, our FBS products are frequently featured in publications and continuously receive glowing reviews from our users.
Simply use the coupon code “Free Shipping” at checkout when ordering 5 or more bottles of any FBS type to take advantage of the promotion. Otherwise, feel free to reach out to David at firstname.lastname@example.org or 952-374-6161 with any questions.
Note: Promotion only applies to customers in the United States and is not valid with additional discounts.

A Number of Versatile Research Tools
A steady stream of results demonstrates that our human cells are both reliable and versatile. Another new publication featuring our human brain microvascular endothelial cells (HBMECs) (cat. HEC02) is proof positive.
Published this week, researchers used our HBMECs to explore potential treatment targets and mechanisms for brain aneurysms. Specifically, the study focused on the role of miR-139-5p in the pathogenesis of brain aneurysms. We encourage you to click here to check out the full publication.

This publication is just the most recent of many publications using these cells in a variety of research areas. Most recently in February, we highlighted a cerebral cavernous malformation (CCM) study using these same cells. Furthermore, they have also been published in COVID-19 and diabetes research in the last year alone. You can check out all publications using these cells here.
New Fibroblasts To Complement Our CAFs
We are constantly expanding our product offerings so that we can continue to be a one-stop shop for biological products. This month, we are pleased to introduce three new cell types that will assuredly help investigators in a variety of fields.
Neuromics is now providing primary human colon fibroblasts (cat. HCF001), lung fibroblasts (cat. HLF001), and pancreatic fibroblasts (cat. HPF001). All three cell types were isolated from healthy donor tissue and are available for $899 (500,000 cells).
Why are we so excited to introduce these cells? These 'normal' fibroblasts perfectly complement our existing selection of cancer associated fibroblasts (CAFs), which have been implicated in important aspects of epithelial solid tumor biology. Cancer researchers can now compare fibroblasts isolated from cancerous tissue (CAFs) and fibroblasts isolated from 'normal' tissue.

5% Off Premium FBS Through the End of March
Through the end of March, all Neuromics premium FBS is 5% off. With already some of the lowest FBS prices in the market, these prices offer an incredible combination of quality and price. And of course, both heat inactivated versions are also 5% off through the end of the month.
Both our Premium USA Origin FBS (cat. FBS001) and Premium (USDA approved) Imported FBS (cat. FBS002) are produced with the highest quality standards, with low endotoxin and hemoglobin levels.
Premium FBS Features:
- Endotoxin levels : ≤10 EU/mL
- Triple 0.1 μm Filtered
- Free of Virus and Mycoplasma
Furthermore, our current lots perform among the best when compared to other premium FBS brands (learn more here). Additionally, our premium FBS is research proven, with many publications referencing their use.
