Hepacult has been awarded a grant from the German Federal Ministry of Economy and Energy to isolate primary human renal proximal tubule epithelial cells for use in in vitro models. There is a large and continuous demand from the pharmaceutical industry and medical research community for this particular type of renal cells. The current supply of human renal tubule epithelial cells is very limited and their quality is far from satisfactory. Based on its experience in this area, Hepacult aims to improve current or develop new isolation processes and to provide the research community with high quality human renal tubule epithelial cells in larger quantities.
