Human osteoblasts are a highly specialized cell type of mesenchymal origin involved in bone formation and remodeling. In vivo, they produce the osteoid, an extracellular matrix rich in collagen type I. In the course of their natural maturation process into osteocytes, called osteogenesis, they become embedded in the bone matrix and stop proliferating.
iXCells Biotechnologies provides high quality Human Osteoblasts (HOb), which are isolated from human bone and cryopreserved at P2, with >0.5 million cells in each vial. These HOb are negative for HIV-1, HBV, HCV, mycoplasma, bacteria, yeast, and fungi and can further expand in Osteoblast Growth Medium (Cat# MD-0054) under the condition suggested by iXCells Biotechnologies.
