Normal primary chondrocytes from human and animal tissue are low passage, high purity, and performance tested. They can be useful cellular models for studying cartilage and joint physiology.  For animal models, canine and feline chondrocytes are also available. Optimized Chondrocyte Growth Media is available as a Total Kit with cryopreserved chondrocytes and subculture reagent kit.
We also isolate chondrocytes from joints of those with Rheumatoid and Osteo Arthritis.  See our chondrocyte-based arthritis disease models.
