Cell Line Origin



Primary Human Dermal Microvascular Endothelial Cells (HDMEC) are isolated from the dermis of juvenile foreskin and are provided in a cryopreserved format. Since the dermis contains blood and lymphatic capillaries, HDMEC comprise Blood and Lymphatic Microvascular Endothelial Cells. Both have a common origin and can be identified by several markers.


Rigid quality control tests are performed for each lot of Microvascular Endothelial Cells. They are tested for cell morphology and cell type specific markers, e.g. von Willebrand Factor (vWF), CD31 and Podoplanin using flow cytometric analyses. Growth performance is tested through multiple passages up to 15 population doublings (PD) without antibiotics or antimycotics. In addition, all cells have been tested for the absence of HIV-1, HIV-2, HBV, HCV, HTLV-1, HTLV-2 and microbial contaminants (fungi, bacteria, and mycoplasma).


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.
