MatTek’s NHDFs are isolated from neonatal (NHDF-CRY-NEO) or adult (NHDF-CRY-AD) donor tissue and cryopreserved.  When cultured according to MatTek’s NHDF protocol, our fibroblasts are guaranteed to have ≥ 75% viability upon thaw and provide ≥ 15 population doublings.  NHDFs are characterized by their spindle morphology and expression of Vimentin.
