Application

Primary Human Follicle Dermal Papilla Cells (HFDPC) are isolated mainly from human dermis of the scalp, originating from the occipital or temple region and are provided in a cryopreserved format. Information on donor hair and skin color is available on request. HFDPC stain positive for alkaline phosphatase.Dermal papillae are embedded in a laminin and collagen IV rich extracellular matrix at the base of the hair follicles. They are essential for the induction and maintenance of hair growth. Since they have androgen receptors, they can be used for in vitro screening of androgen blocking reagents.

Quality

Rigid quality control tests are performed for each lot of Follicle Dermal Papilla Cells. They are tested for cell morphology, adherence rate, and cell viability. Immunohistochemical tests for significant markers, e.g. alkaline phosphatase, are carried out for each lot. Growth performance is tested through multiple passages up to 10 population doublings (PD) under culture conditions without antibiotics and antimycotics. In addition, all cells have been tested for the absence of HIV-1, HIV-2, HBV, HCV, and microbial contaminants (fungi, bacteria, and mycoplasma).

Warning

Although tested negative for HIV-1, HIV-2, HBV, HCV, HTLV-1 and HTLV-2, the cells – like all products of human origin – should be handled as potentially infectious. No test procedure can completely guarantee the absence of infectious agents.
