Cell Culture
We offer high purity, low passage, rigorously characterized human and animal cell types covering a wide range of endothelial cells, smooth muscle cells, epithelial cells, and many other critical types.
Media & Reagents
We provide optimized growth media to ensure the robust growth of each cell type. Also available are specially formulated differentiation media, starvation media, freezing media, and monolayer-maintenance media.
For use in a variety of immunochemical assays, Cell Applications, Inc. offers a variety of antibodies for the detection of phospho- and signaling proteins, receptors, cell surface markers, growth factors, transcription factors, and many others.
Transfect Primary Cells
You can cost-effectively transfect primary cells! Cell Applications, Inc. introduces Cytofect™ Transfection Reagents, a high efficiency, low toxicity, optimized transfection system that delivers DNA into a wide variety of primary cells and cell lines without relying on expensive electroporation devices.
Growth Factors & Cytokines
We provide growth factors and cytokines for studies in many areas of biological research including: cancer, angiogenesis, neuroscience, apoptosis, cell signaling, and immunology. Each protein is expressed in E. coli, sequence verified, and tested to be biologically active using relevant assay methods.
