Cell Line Models & Media for Difficult to Culture Tumor Types
publication date: Mar 20, 2017
AMSBIO has introduced a new range of cancer cell line models and culture media for the most difficult to culture tumor types where no models may exist.
Alex Sim, Managing Director at AMSBIO said, "Our new partnership with Cellaria Biosciences expands our existing portfolio by introducing patient-derived cancer models; allowing customers to conduct research and drug discovery initiatives to advance precision medicine.”
Directly derived from patient tumors without any genetic manipulation, these new products provide the assurance of primary cells with long-term reproducibility and scalability. Unlike traditional protocols for cell line creation, these cancer models eliminate the possibility of large scale cellular adaptation through culture and genetic drift.
Beneficially the cancer cell models are stable and show a high level of agreement to the original tumor genotype through 150 passages via SNP analysis. In addition, the cell models exhibit predictable growth rates and stable proteomic expression. As you would expect from a respected supplier such as AMSBIO these models come fully consented, fully documented, and subject to extensive quality control.
The quality control of the cancer cell models includes screened for all major categories of cell contaminants, including mycoplasma, microbial contaminants, viruses, cell line cross-contamination and STR profiling. Lot specific growth rate and protocol data is provided for every customer. AMSBIO's extensive quality control process ensures stable growth rate for each lot of Cellaria cell models delivered.
AMSBIO also offers a range of high quality cell culture media including Renaissance Essential Tumor Medium (RETM) and WIT culture media for the primary normal cell culture.
