Normal Human Epidermal Keratinocytes
MatTek’s primary Normal Human Epidermal Keratinocytes (NHEK) and Growth Medium (NHEK-GM) provide an optimized platform for investigating keratinocyte biology. Available from neonatal or adult donors across a variety of ethnicities, MatTek’s NHEKs offer quality and convenience for the study of inflammation, oxidative stress, toxicity & phototoxicity, wound healing, drug screening and tissue modeling.
Donor matched cell types (fibroblasts & melanocytes) are available upon request.
MatTek’s NHEKs are isolated from neonatal (NHEK-CRY-NEO) or adult (NHEK-CRY-AD) donor tissue and cryopreserved as primary cells. When cultured in MatTek’s NHEK-GM Growth Medium according to MatTek’s NHEK-CRY protocols, our epidermal keratinocytes are guaranteed to have ≥ 75% viability upon thaw and to produce ≥ 15 population doublings. NHEKs are characterized by their cobblestone morphology and expression of cytokeratins.
Primary Human Epidermal Keratinocytes cultured in NHEK-GM were stained for Keratin 14 (pink), Phalloidin (blue) and Ki67 (yellow)
