Single donor suspension human hepatocytes can be used in species comparison, metabolic stability, uptake transporter assays, and other drug metabolism and pharmacokinetics (DMPK)-related assays. We offer assured minimum yield (AMY) and selection criteria options, allowing us to customize your order to meet specific needs of your study.
Single Donor Suspension Human Hepatocytes
Similar to our cryoplateable human hepatocytes, individual donors can be selected based on enzyme activity, demographics, and any other characteristics. We offer single donor CroystaX® with an assured minimum yield (AMY) of 5 million cells , or our traditional vial format hepatocytes come with with an AMY of 3, 4, or 6 million cells. Each lot of cryopreserved human hepatocytes is extensively, accurately characterized using LC-MS/MS methods (see table below). Uptake transporter characterization is also available for select lots.
CroystaX® Single Donor Human Hepatocytes
As an alternative to traditional vial format, we offer a convenient format for human and animal cryopreserved primary hepatocytes called CryostaX®. Our patented production technique was developed to minimize the number of freeze-thaw cycles cells have to endure during the pooling process, reducing cryoinjury to improve the quality of your assays. But the resulting format has added benefits; because CryostaX® are cryopreserved in pellet format, AMY per vial can be easily adjusted for customers who need custom cell yields for their assays that require fewer cells. Additionally, the thawing process is simplified (see our demonstration video below) to enable you to go from storage to assay in fewer steps, and our streamlined ordering process gives you all the information you need– including upfront pricing– to choose the perfect lots for your assays.
