Endothelial cells are the cells that line the blood vessels of the entire circulatory system, ranging from the aorta to capillaries, and act as the barrier between circulating blood and the rest of the vessel wall. At the cellular interface, endothelial cells are involved in the processes of angiogenesis, vasculogenesis, vasoregulation, coagulation, fibrinolysis, and blood cell trafficking.
Cell Applications, Inc.'s human endothelial cells include: aortic, pulmonary artery, coronary artery, umbilical vein endothelial cells, umbilical artery, and microvascular endothelial cells. Depends on whether they are large, intermediate ("meso"), or capillary blood vessel endothelial cells, they require different medium for their optimal growth. Learn more about these specific cell types by clicking on the cell pictures below. We also offer a comprehensive selection of animal endothelial cells to match your animal model of choice.
All our endothelial cells are high purity, low passage, rigorously characterized, and performance tested. These endothelial cells demonstrate robust growth in Cell Applications, Inc.'s Growth Media: click on the video to the right to see these cells in culture.
For your convenience, our endothelial cells are available as either cryovials or as proliferating cells in flasks or multi-well plate formats. Cryopreserved endothelial cells are offered as part of user-friendly total kits that include optimized growth media and subculture reagent kits. The Total Kit includes all the supporting reagents you need to culture and passage the cells. In addition, we also offer the antibodies, ELISA kits, and transfection reagents for your research needs.
With 17 years of experience isolating, growing, and experimenting with a wide array of endothelial cells, and hundreds of peer-reviewed Citations from researchers spotlighting our primary cells, you can count on Cell Applications, Inc. to provide expert technical support to achieve your research objectives.
