iXCells Biotechnologies provides high quality Human Internal Thoracic Smooth Muscle Cells (HITASMC), which are isolated from normal internal thoracic arteries (formerly called internal mammary arteries) and cryopreserved at P1, with >0.5 million cells in each vial. HITASM express α-smooth muscle actin and desmin and are negative for HIV-1, HBV, HCV, mycoplasma, bacteria, yeast, and fung. HITASM can further expand for 10 population doublings in Smooth Muscle Cell Growth Medium (Cat# MD-0034) under the condition suggested by iXCells Biotechnologies.
