Application

Cryopreserved human monocyte-derived macrophages (hMDM) are convenient and easy-to-handle. The thawed cells plate into all tissue culture vessel formats and can be maintained as adherent, biologically functional cultures for several weeks. Optionally, user-customizable activation of the cells can be performed.Cryopreserved human macrophages are produced from monocytes in M2 Macrophage Generation Media DXF and are available as non-activated, fully qualified M2- (M-CSF) polarized cells. After 9-10 days of differentiation, the M2 macrophages are cryopreserved using Cryo-SFM. Each cryo vial contains more than 5 million viable cells after thawing.

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.
