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)
HEKa cells grown in EpiLife (M-EPI-500-CA) with the addition of Human Keratinocyte Growth Supplement (HKGS). First culture after thaw.
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.

When minimizing waste in your lab, every little bit helps. The 1 L Gibco bottle uses 38% less source material (32% less for the 0.5 L bottle) than comparable media bottles on the market today. This reduces the consumption of non-renewable resources helping shrink your footprint.
