Non-parenchymal Liver Cells
In-vitro technologies that reflect the in-vivo situation like long-term 2D and 3D cell and tissue cultures, organ-bio-printing that may serve as alternatives to animal experiments rely on the availability and require the combination of all cell types incorporated within any given organ.
In co-operation with the Institute of Pharmacology at the University of Greifswald, Primacyt has started a research project to establish isolation, cultivation, and cryopreservation of non-parenchymal liver cells.
Combination of non-parenchymal liver cells with the already available parenchymal liver cells or hepatocytes will enable researchers to establish and provide in-vitro systems closely related to the in-vivo situation.
This project is supported in part by Mecklenburg-Pomeranian Ministry of Economics and Tourism and the European Union Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
