Epithelial cells are involved in normal day-to-day physiological activities of every tissue and organ in the body.  BioIVT provides epithelial cells isolated from freshly resected tumor. Cells are cryopreserved after a limited number of passages and are provided as frozen ampoules. All cases are provided with our standard set of clinical data.

BioIVT has extensive scientific expertise in the isolation and propagation of diseased human primary cells. Primary cells, from normal and diseased cohorts,  offer the closest known comparison to the original tissue. All donor material is confirmed for tissue type and diagnosis by our certified Pathologists and the resulting cells are known to be free of common human pathogens and are sterility tested. Each lot of cells is provided with available donor clinical data and drug history.

BioIVT offers Human Cancer Associated Epithelial Cells (HuEPIs) from multiple donors with the following cancers:

Breast Ovarian Kidney Gastric

Custom cell isolation is also available upon request.

Features & Benefits

Primary cells propagated for limited time and cryopreserved after minimal numbers of passage. Thus, these cells maintain their differentiated state and can be used as an in vitro model system for molecular changes associated with disease.

Contents and Storage

Viable cells per vial is donor and lot dependent.
Cells are stored in cryopreservation media (CryoStor® CS5, Sigma Aldrich).

Use Biosafety Level 1 safety procedures when handling these primary cells.

  • Sterility Test: Negative for bacterial growth, fungal growth
  • Pathogen Test: Negative for Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, HIV1, HIV2, Mycoplasma sp.
