Cardiovascular Research Reagents available from Caltag Medsystems

Cardiovascular Research Reagents available from Caltag Medsystems

Heart and circulatory disease is the UK’s biggest killer. Coronary heart disease, the main form of cardiovascular disease causes over 90,000 deaths a year in the UK: approximately one in five deaths in men and one in six deaths in women.

Increased understanding of the basic pathophysiological mechanisms of cardiovascular disease continues to direct translational research, which in turn leads to superior, more targeted therapies.

Caltag Medsystems provide a wide range of reagents for Cardiovascular Research. Please click here to view an excel spreadsheet, separated out by product type, listing all of the Cardiovascular products that we supply.

Key Benefits

BriClone is a conditioned medium collected from a human cell line, supplied as a frozen medium in 100ml aliquots. It is a cloning medium suitable for use in the post fusion stages of hybridoma production and for cloning hybridoma cells under conditions of limiting dilution. When added to culture media, BriClone replaces the function of feeder cells.
