Do you require Human or Animal Tissue for your Research?

Biopredic provide Human and Animal Primary Cells, Cell Lines and Tissues for Research, Drug Discovery, Drug Development, Pharmacology and Toxicology:
  • Hepatocytes
  • Skin, Skin, Skin
  • Primary Cells
  • Blood Products
  • HepaRG Cells
Cryopreserved Hepatocytes are available from a number of species including Human, Sprague Dawley rat, CD1 mouse, Beagle dog, and Cynomolgus monkey. Available in a suspension grade, monolayer grade or induction grade. Please see below for product codes and pricing.

Fresh Hepatocytes are also available – weekly inventory updates are available containing the schedules for cell harvesting. Sign up for email alerts to be contacted when fresh hepatocytes are available, email

Note – these cells can be seeded in culture plates and flasks and used as monolayer. The induction of several cytochromes in these cells is guaranteed.

If you require specific vial sizes and protein concentrations, bespoke vialing is also available. For further details of this or any of the hepatocyte products, please do not hesitate to contact us, either by telephone +44 (0) 1280 827460 or by email

Skin, Skin, Skin
Do you carry out research that requires fresh or frozen skin?

Look no further.. we can provide you with human skin from breast, abdomen and  scalp; fresh and  frozen. Along with a variety of animal skin samples.

Sign up for our fresh skin alerts and receive details of scheduled tummy tucks and breast reduction operations for each week. Then, just choose the option that best suits your requirements regarding stretchmark’s, sex and BMI. Let us know you are interested as soon as you can, and we will reserve the sample for you.. Sounds good doesn’t it?

If frozen skin is more appropriate to your research, download the latest inventory and decide the sample you require. Let me know and I’ll send you a quote or call you to discuss your needs if that’s easier.

For full pricing details, please see the tables on this page, note that the price of skin changes for pieces over 25cm2 in size. Also, skin that is more than one year old (tables with a green background) is discounted over skin that is less than one year old (tables with a blue background).

    HepaRG Cells
    HepaRG hepatocytes, cells which have the unique properties of maintaining hepatocyte functions and are also able to carry out the complete replicative cycle of the Hepatitis B Virus, meaning they can be used in toxicology studies as an alternative to fresh hepatocytes.
