Normal primary adult melanocytes are a vital research tool for a variety of applications from malignant melanoma research to pigmentation studies as well as for cosmetics and skin biology programs. ZenBio isolates normal human adult melanocytes and evaluates purity and function using both Mel-5 staining (figure 1) and the conversion of L-dopa -> dopamelanin (figure 2).
These adult melanocyte cultures are available at 95% purity and are recommended with optimized media formulated specifically to support growth and survival in vitro.
