Human Tissues and Primary Cells

Human Tissues and Primary Cells

StemExpress is a life-science company dedicated to supporting researchers globally by offering high-quality human tissues and primary cells from bone marrow, cord blood, peripheral blood (healthy or diseased), mobilized peripheral blood, and maternal blood. Samples are collected from our strategically located Stem Cell Collection Centers or within our wide network of partnering hospitals by our own procurement staff. Whole samples are sent directly to our clients or quickly processed to a primary cell population at one of our on-site GLP regulatory-compliant laboratories. We streamline the entire workflow, from donor recruitment all the way to shipping the final product, guaranteeing every sample arrives with the highest purity, viability, and quality researchers need to ensure confidence in their results.

How to thaw StemExpress primary cells for optimal viability?

Primary cells are very sensitive to many aspects of the thawing procedure, such as heat, DMSO, agitation, and high centripetal forces. Obtaining high viability after thawing human primary cells can be difficult if not performed quickly and with good laboratory techniques. At StemExpress, our laboratory technicians have years of experience handling and thawing frozen human primary cells and have designed a procedure that will help you obtain the highest viability of your cells.
