Customised cell isolation
Provitro provides customised isolation of primary cells from tissue supplied by the customer. Included are not only standard cell types listed in this catalogue but other cell types as well. Please, contact us for a quotation in conformity with your specific needs. Should certain desired cell types not be included in our standard programme, we shall be glad to perform the first test trial of cell isolation free of charge.
Cell culture test of new/toxic substances on primary cells and defined cell lines, respectively
Cytotoxicity testing is based on the general assumption that any substance, depending on its concentration, may have toxic effects on human cells. The test concerned will define and identify basal cytotoxicity, independent of metabolic effects. The test system may be used to check all aqueous or water-soluble samples as well as eluates of solids for their toxicity on human cells.
Individual training course on cell culture methods
Provitro offers specialised training courses for techno-scientific staff and thus is prepared to transfer its proprietary experience with regard to cell culture systems. We provide basic theoretical knowledge together with an opportunity to obtain practical skills in isolating and maintaining cell cultures. We also provide tuition in maintaining cell and tissue cultures in our perfusion culture systems, PCS3c, TCS2c and FCS1c (see chapter »perfusion culture systems«).
