Assay-Ready Expanded (ARE) Hepatocytes are primary human hepatocytes that have been adapted to culture such that they are highly plateable and easy to handle. They have limited proliferative capacity and should be used directly for endpoint assays since they are cryopreserved in a fully-functional, differentiated state. This kit consists of: 1 vial of ARE Hepatocytes, Thawing Medium, Maintenance Medium (insulin-free option available) and Type I Collagen-coated Multi-well Plates.
