Human Corneal Epithelial Cells
Our Gibco® Human Corneal Epithelial Cells (HCECs) are normal corneal epithelial cells isolated from the progenitor-rich limbal region of the eye. Primary HCECs are prepared to provide ≥70% viability upon thawing, with each vial containing sufficient cells to seed =100 cm2 of tissue culture surface.
In this picture, HCECs are imaged using the Click-iT® Edu Alexa Fluor® 488 imaging kit, anti- alpha -tubulin antibody with Goat anti-mouse Alexa Fluor® 555 secondary, and Hoechst 33342.
Each lot of HCECs undergoes performance testing and is guaranteed to achieve at least 12 population doublings (PD) after thawing when using Keratinocyte Serum-Free Medium (KSFM). HCECs stain positive in immunocytochemistry screens for the corneal epithelial markers cytokeratin 15 and p63 alpha.
