Normal Human Bronchial Fibroblasts

MatTek’s Normal Human Bronchial Fibroblasts (NHBF) provide an ideal culture system to study cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions, airway inflammation, ECM remodeling, fibrosis and wound healing. NHBFs from non-diseased donors, as well as donors with well-characterized smoking history, or diseases such as asthma and COPD, are available.

Donor-matched bronchial epithelial cells (NHBE) are available upon request.

Normal Human Bronchial Fibroblasts (NHBFs) exhibit spindle-like morphology in monolayer culture and are characterized by positive staining for the fibroblast marker, vimentin. Our cells are guaranteed to provide a minimum of 15 population doublings and ≥ 75% viability upon thaw when handled according to MatTek’s NHBF protocol.
