These cryopreserved purified Kupffer cells are isolated from adult male Sprague-Dawley rats. Each vial contains a minimum of one million cells.

Each lot of Cryopreserved Rat Kupffer Cells is tested for:

• Purity
• Response to activation with LPS
• Adherence
• Minimum 1 million cells per vial

Kupffer Cells for Improved Physiological Modeling

Growing evidence shows that under both normal and pathological conditions, many hepatocyte functions are regulated by substances released from neighboring non-parenchymal cells (NPC). These cells, particularly Kupffer cells, play an important role in the modulation of xenobiotic metabolism in the liver. Kupffer cells secrete potent mediators of the inflammatory response that controls liver inflammation. These cytokine mediators control hepatocyte metabolic rates through direct interactions with phase I and phase II enzymes. Kupffer cell and hepatocyte co-cultures can self-assemble within 72 hours of treatment with pro-inflammatory cytokines or LPS, and can function by effectively modulating P450 expression, thus giving a more physiologically relevant result. Studies indicate that co-culture of hepatocytes with NPCs would better represent both normal liver physiology as well as disease states.

Hepatic Spheroid Kit (Gibco™)

The Gibco Hepatic Spheroid Kit is the first off-the-shelf kit for generation of hepatic spheroids in your own lab.

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

What you get:
• Spheroid-qualified hepatocytes
• Hepatocyte Thaw Medium
• Plating supplement (Cocktail A + Dexamethasone)
• Maintenance supplement (Cocktail B + Dexamethasone)
• Fetal bovine serum
• Williams' E Medium, no phenol red
• Nunclon Sphera 96-well U-bottom plates

Please note that components are shipped separately due to differences in storage temperatures.

Simplified protocol
Cryopreserved cells can be thawed and plated at your convenience, in as little sa 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.

Dog (Beagle) Cryopreserved Hepatocytes, Male (Gibco™)

These cryopreserved male dog (Beagle) hepatocytes have been characterized for general Phase I and Phase II drug metabolizing enzyme activities.

Cells per vial: 4-8 million

Get the Results You Need with GIBCO Hepatocytes
High quality hepatocytes, with high viabilities, in vivo-like enzyme expression levels, and proper cell morphology increase the ability to draw in vitro⁄in vivo correlations and make sound decisions regarding a compound's fate. Experienced technicians and proprietary isolation techniques combined with stringent release specifications ensure you receive the highest quality cryopreserved hepatocytes.

Each lot is tested for:
• Phase I and II enzyme activities
• Proper morphology
• Viabilities generally >75%

For research use only. Not intended for human or animal therapeutic or diagnostic use.
