Perineurial cells are of mesenchymal origin and form the perineurium. The perineurium is a physical barrier that limits the entry of biologically active proteins, infectious agents and blood-borne cells into the nerve bundles.
Human perineurial cells (HPNC) are isolated from human spinal nerve. HPNC are cryopreserved at passage one and delivered frozen.
Each vial contains 500 000 cells in 1 ml volume.
HPNC are characterized by immunofluorescence with antibodies specific to vimentin, S-100, GFAP and CD90.
HPNC are negative for HIV-1, HBV, HCV, mycoplasma, bacteria, yeast, and fungi.
HPNC are guaranteed to further expand for 15 population doublings under the conditions provided.
It is recommended to use Fibroblast Medium (FM, Cat. SC2301) for culturing HPNC in vitro.
Upon receiving, directly and immediately transfer the cells from dry ice to liquid nitrogen and keep the cells in liquid nitrogen until they are needed for experiments.
HPNC are for research use only. They are not approved for human or animal use, or for application in in vitro diagnostic procedures.
