Normal Human Dermal Fibroblasts
MatTek’s Normal Human Dermal Fibroblasts (NHDF) provide an optimized platform for investigating dermal biology. Available from neonatal or adult donors across a variety of ethnicities, MatTek’s NHDFs offer quality and convenience for the study of ECM production, wound healing, fibrosis, drug screening and tissue modeling.
Donor matched keratinocytes (NHEK) & melanocytes (NHM) are available upon request.
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.
