BIOMIMESYS® Hepatocyte: Liver Extracellular Microenvironment
Available in a ready-to-use format for 3D culture of hepatocytes and hepatocyte-like cells under physiological conditions representative of the liver microenvironment. The highly porous nature of the BIOMIMESYS scaffold allows for rapid uptake of nutrients, oxygen, etc. into cells to create a reproducible study model for all downstream analytical techniques used with 3D cell culture.

Live Webinar: A New Dimension for Hepatocyte Culture
Presented by Celenys
Monday 18th April, 15.00 GMT
Find out all you need to know about the BIOMIMESYS® Hepatocyte plate for the 3D culture of hepatocytes and take part in a live question and answer session.

Fresh Human and Animal HepatocytesBiopredic International has a well-organised supply network providing regular delivery of human liver resects. Resects are from partial hepatectomies or from human whole livers rejected for liver transplantation, and animal livers. High quality fresh human and animal hepatocytes are isolated and then fully characterised.
We also offer a fresh hepatocyte alert service. To receive dates of intended surgeries and to reserve hepatocytes, please sign up here.

Cryopreserved Hepatocytes
With more than 20 years in-house experience of cryopreserving human and animal hepatocytes, Biopredic continues to offer high quality hepatocytes in suspension (Grade S) or plateable formats.
Plateable hepatocytes are offered in different grades:
Cryoplateable Human Hepatocytes (Grade P)Cryoplateable and Inducible Human Hepatocytes (Grade I)Cryoplateable & Easy-to-Use Hepatocytes (Grade NS for “no-spin required”)Cryoplateable & Sandwich Culture Hepatocytes

Why is basal media and supplementation important in primary cell culture?

Six common mistakes that are made with primary cells
Cells | Stem Cells | Media | Reagents | Growth Factors | Assay Kits | Gene Analysis
Basal Media
Choosing which media to use with your primary cells can be daunting. Whether you are replicating a formula from a publication, optimising your own supplemented classical or nutrient media, or purchasing commercially available specialty media, it is important to understand how this choice will affect your primary cultures, and subsequently your research.

Do you require frozen skin samples?
Caltag Medsystems
Biopredic International have an inventory of abdominal and breast human skin samples for research use. Skin samples are collected from patients who have undergone cosmetic surgery, such as tummy tucks, and are supplied with donor consent forms, sample photos, age, sex, body mass index (BMI), ethnicity, possible disease states, living habits etc. Typical Certificates of Analysis can be viewed here.
Skin can be provided at full thickness or dermatomed and as sheets or discs of different diameters (from 5 to 40 mm), with or without stretch marks. For dermatomed skin samples, the thickness of the skin ranges from 300 to 700 ┬Ám.
Customised preparations are also available on demand (specific patient characteristics, shape, thickness for dermatomed skin and use of your own medium). All samples are tested negative for HIV1/2, HBV, HCV. Samples can also be fixed and embedded: FFPE, OCT or following your specific protocol.

Are You Isolating Circulating Tumour Cells?
Caltag Medsystems
ScreenCell® is a simple and innovative non-invasive technology for isolating Circulating Rare Cells (CRCs) from whole blood, and potentially any atypical cell in biological fluids.
 ScreenCell® is currently the only system, which:
- is completely independent of any equipment
- is designed for standardised IVD assays and platforms
- allows you to filter in only 3 minutes
- allows the filtering of fixed as well as live cells if needed
- allows the analysis of residual fluid- is not dependant on EpCAM
 
By providing an easy access to fixed or live Circulating Tumour Cells (CTCs) and Circulating Tumour Microemboli (CTMs), the ScreenCell devices allow full phenotypical, genotypical, and functional characterisation of these cells. 
ScreenCell® devices are available in three different formats; ‘molecular biology’, ‘cell culture’ and ‘enumeration and cytomorpholoy’, selected according to the end point analysis required. Please click on the buttons below to find out more about these specific formats:
