PneumaCult™ Media for Airway Epithelial Cells
PneumaCult™ cell culture media are specifically designed to support submerged culture and subsequent mucociliary differentiation during air-liquid interface culture (ALI culture) of primary human bronchial epithelial cells, as well as primary human tracheal and nasal epithelial cells. Human tracheobronchial epithelial cells expanded in PneumaCult™-Ex
and then cultured at the air-liquid interface with PneumaCult™-ALI undergo extensive differentiation to form a pseudostratified epithelium that closely resembles the human airway. Furthermore, PneumaCult™-ALI
cultures can elicit physiological responses to known stimuli, making the PneumaCult™ cell culture media system a robust tool for in vitro airway epithelial cell research. Primary human bronchial epithelial cells differentiated in PneumaCult™-ALI constitute a highly physiological model for respiratory research, with applications including developmental and disease state studies of the airway epithelium, upstream drug development, toxicity testing, and drug transport studies.
Benefits of PneumaCult™:
- PHYSIOLOGICALLY RELEVANT: Cells differentiated using the PneumaCult™ system closely model the human airway.
- REPRODUCIBLE: PneumaCult™ media are serum- and BPE-free, maximizing experimental reproducibility.
- USER-FRIENDLY: Uncomplicated components and optimized protocols make PneumaCult™ easy to use.
