Cell/Tissue Derived Products
- Cell Extracts
Total protein extracts have been prepared from cultured subcutaneous and omental preadipocytes and adipocytes. These protein extracts are suitable for Western blotting, ELISA assays or immunoprecipitation. We can prepare custom cell extracts upon request.
- Conditioned Media
Conditioned media from cultured subcutaneous and omental preadipocytes and adipocytes are available in 10 ml aliquots. The cells are incubated with serum and phenol red free basal medium for 24 hours. Supernatants are collected and flash frozen. These preparations are suitable for a variety of assays. We can prepare custom conditioned medium from various cell types upon request.
- Custom Culture Services
ZenBio offers an extensive array of cell types and plate formats in our regular catalog. When you require a cell type or plating format not currently listed, please let us know. We are able to work with our surgical partners to obtain various additional tissue types as well as isolate various cell types from tissue we currently receive.
- Custom Procurement Solutions
ZenBio offers cells, tissue, and serum from a diverse group of donor populations. Products are available from mixed donor lots, individual donor lots and a variety of disease states such as type II diabetes, hypertension, and others. Often, ZenBio is able to provide additional value added information such as blood panels and history of disease. In the event we do not have samples from a donor demographic that meets your needs, we are able to custom tailor a solution.
- Flash Frozen Floaters
Primary adipocytes or floaters are isolated from adipose tissue during the initial processing of tissue. These floaters have been flash frozen in liquid nitrogen and can be used for cell extract applications.
- Human Skin
ZenBio offers both fresh and flash frozen skin. We have extensive inventory of flash frozen skin from various depots and donor demographics.
- Human Tissue / Fluids
ZenBio offers an extensive list of flash frozen human tissues and fluids for your research needs.
- Reconstructed Human Epidermis (RHE)
ZenBio, has developed a cost-effective Reconstructed Human Epidermis (RHE) model which mimics the barrier function of human stratum corneum, as well as a complete viable epidermis.
High quality RNA is available from an extensive listing of human primary cells and tissues. The RNA is high quality from both normal and diseased donors. Donor information including age, sex, and body mass index will be included with your order. We can accommodate many special requests.
Subcutaneous and omental adipose tissue from a variety of donors have been formalin fixed and embedded in paraffin. Tissue has been sectioned into 0.2 µM sections onto slides. These slides are suitable for a variety of histological applications.
