Hepatocytes in suspension are used primarily for compound stability, metabolite formation, extended incubations using the relay method, inhibition studies, uptake, and gene expression studies. Suspension lots are best suited for short-term incubations (4-6 hours) due to inherent decreases in viability and metabolic activity over time.
Primary Human Hepatocytes for Suspension
Pooled suspension human hepatocytes offer a simple, cost-effective test system for in vitro metabolite identification, species comparison, metabolic stability, and uptake transporter studies. All of our pooled human hepatocyte products are prepared with specialized techniques that conserve viability and promote cell yield.
Single donor suspension human hepatocytes can be used in species comparison, metabolic stability, drug metabolism, uptake transporter assays, and 3D hepatic models. We offer Single Donor suspension hepatocytes in our patented, single-freeze CroystaX® format with an assured minimum yield (AMY) of 5 million cells. We also offer traditional vial format lots with AMY options of 3, 4, or 6 million cells. We include many selection criteria options, allowing us to customize your order to meet the specific needs of your study.
