Axol's Human Intrahepatic Biliary Epithelial Cells are the epithelial cells that line the intrahepatic bile ducts.
These cells are important in modification of the ductal bile and are targeted in multiple liver diseases, such as primary biliary cirrhosis, cholangiocarcinoma and sclerosing cholangitis.
Intrahepatic Biliary Epithelial Cells are characterized by yield, viability, morphology, and passage. The purity of the cell population is determined using FACS analysis for the % positive of cell surface markers CK8/18/19 (epithelial marker) and EpCam (epithelial marker). Each lot has a minimum of 500,000 cells per vial and a viability of > 70%.
Axol recommends pairing with our media ax3766-1 (Intra-Hepatic Biliary Epithelial Cell Culture Medium) for best results.
Full certificates of analysis are provided for each lot. Batch reservation is available on request.
