Gibco Human Spheroid-Qualified Hepatocytes are off-the-shelf cryopreserved human cells for generation of hepatic spheroids in your own lab. Each vial contains a minimum of five million viable cells, sufficient for up to sixteen 96-well plates of hepatic spheroids.

Maintain cells in culture longer—up to 21 days, >4X longer than cells last in monolayer culture
Design your own schedule—cells are ready for plating when you are
Interrogate pathways of interest—applicable for toxicity, metabolism, or disease modeling

Simplified protocol
Cryopreserved cells can be thawed and plated at your convenience, in as little as 60 minutes. Try it on your own, or request a demo with an experienced scientist.

Stringent quality control
Our high standards help ensure only the best spheroid-forming lots become available, maximizing your chance of success. In addition, each lot is tested for:
• Phase I and II enzyme activities
• Proper morphology
• Viability >75%
• Attachment efficiency
• Monolayer formation and integrity

Important! For best results, do not attempt hepatic spheroid formation in low attachment plates from other sources. Hepatocyte lots are qualified in Nunclon Sphera plates only and use of other plates can lead to variability in spheroid formation.

Flexible readouts
Analyze single spheroids or pool several for detection in assays such as gene expression, immunostaining, viability, or CYP activity.

For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
