HSkMC are isolated from human trapezius muscle and erector spinae muscles of the back. HSkMC are cryopreserved at P0 and delivered frozen. Each vial contains >5 x 105 cells in 1 ml volume. HSkMC are characterized by immunofluorescence with antibodies specific to myosin, actin and actinin. HSkMC are negative for HIV-1, HBV, HCV, mycoplasma, bacteria, yeast and fungi. HSkMC are guaranteed to further expand for 15 population doublings under the conditions provided.
Recommended Medium: It is recommended to use Skeletal Muscle Cell Medium (SkMCM, Cat. SC3501) for the culturing of HSkMC in vitro.
Product Use: HSkMC are for research use only. They are not approved for human or animal use, or for application in in vitro diagnostic procedures.
Storage: 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.
