cell support services
NovoHelix offers a range of cell services to ensure success of custom ‘disease-in-a-dish’ cell models. These service requests include gamma-irradiation of feeder cells, embryonic fibroblast derivation for co-culture of pluripotent stem cells, primary cell immortalization, and establishment of primary cell lines from elite animals for somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) and genome engineering. We offer flexible modalities including adherent and suspension bioreactors for scalable culture, single-cell cloning and expansion, and colony screening in 96-well or 384-well microplate formats. Although we have not enumerated ever cell service that we offer, please inquire through our online quote portal for requests that are not directly listed.
