Qualyst Transporter Certified™ Hepatocytes

Current Promotions

Select lots of Sekisui XenoTech cryoplateable human hepatocytes have been certified to culture for 5 days and maintain both uptake and efflux transporters as well as proper bile canaliculi formation. The Transporter Certified™ hepatocytes have passed a multi-point evaluation starting with plating/culturing characteristics and ending with a broad evaluation of hepatic functions including uptake and efflux transporter functions, metabolic function and baseline bile acid synthesis/production. Aside from just using high quality cells in your study, these cells can also be used in B-CLEAR® studies with a Qualyst Transporter Solutions Cell-Less B-CLEAR® Kit. Each lot of Transporter Certified™ hepatocytes contains the following information:

Transporter Activity

Rosuvastatin Uptake (OATPs)
Pravastatin Uptake (OATPs)
Taurocholate Uptake (NTCP, OATPs)
Methotrexate Uptake (OAT1, OAT3)
