Our Primary Human Keratinocyte Cell Cultures are optimized to synthesize keratinocyte cells, the predominant cell type in the epidermis. The keratinocytes found in the basal layer or stratum germinativum of the skin are sometimes referred to as basal cells or basal keratinocytes.
Primary Human Keratinocyte Cells adult (HEKa)
Primary Human Keratinocyte Cells neonatal (HEKn)
- > 500,000 cells/vial cryopreserved at the end of the 1' culture
- > 70% viability
- > 25 population doublings HEKa (adult)
- > 30 population doublings HEKn (neonatal)
- Optimized for superior performance over the leading competitors

Gibco EpiLife serum-free cell culture medium
- Defined, animal origin-free medium
- Extends the in vitro lifespan of primary cells up to two times compared to other serum-free media
- Ease of use with single-shot supplementation
Figure 1. Normal neonatal human keratinocytes (HEKn) (C-001-5C) were grown in EpiLife medium and in a keratinocyte medium from a leading competitor. Cultures grown in EpiLife medium demonstrated population doublings over an extended period compared to cells grown in the competitor's medium.
