Human dendritic cells

Human Dendritic cells are are antigen-presenting cells of the mammalian immune system, derived from peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) or haematopoietic bone marrow progenitor cells. Their main function is to process antigen material and present it on the cell surface to the T-cells of the immune system, acting as messengers between the innate and the adaptive immune systems. 

ZenBio offers cryopreserved human dendritic cells for research use.

Benefits of using these dendritic cells

  • Lot QC tested for surface marker characterisation
  • Guaranteed purity of 95%
  • Viability of >80%
  • Serology screening of cells
  • Samples fully consented including for genetic analysis and commercial research purposes

Dendritic cell pathogen testing

All cryopreserved dendritic cells are tested negative for HIV-1, HIV-2, HTLV I, HTLV II, Syphilis, CMV, HBV, HCV via PCR. However, no known test can offer complete assurance that the cells are pathogen free. Products are tested and are free from mycoplasma contamination. Proper precautions and biological containment should be taken when handling cells of human origin, due to their potential biohazardous nature. All human based products should be handled at a BSL-2 (Biosafety Level 2) or higher.

Recommended reagents

To prevent clumping and to maximise viability upon thawing, we strongly suggest the use of our Lymphocyte Medium (LYMPH1LYMPH-1-50) to thaw these cells, especially if you are using a homemade formulation and not achieving success.
