In this webinar ATCC expert Kevin Grady will cover these key points:
Toxicologists need the high biological relevance of primary cells and the proliferative capacity of cell lines for standard, predictive assays; neither model provides both characteristics.
- upcyte® technology offers sufficient quantities of hepatocytes that exhibit primary cell physiologies such as CYP activity. Long-term culturing is possible to detect low level hepatotoxicity.
- upcyte® Hepatocytes are fully characterized with validated performance data, and they are tested for CYP induction and inhibition.
