Freshly isolated human hepatocytes represent a living biological system in which to measure metabolism, induction, toxicity, and transporter studies. Fresh human hepatocytes from BioIVT are isolated from whole livers not resect tissues. We process the tissue the same day to ensure you receive the highest quality human hepatocytes.

Fresh human hepatocyte are typically isolated at least once week sometimes multiple times a week. Human hepatocyte isolations cannot be scheduled as this is dependent on when human liver tissue becomes available.

Fresh suspension and various plate formats are available including collagen and Matrigel overlay for sandwich cultures.

Fresh human hepatocyte notifications are sent out via our HepatAlert™ system. HepatAlert notifications for human hepatocytes can be sent out at anytime including weekends and some holidays. To receive these human hepatocyte notifications fill out our HepatAlert notification form.
