Data Sheet

Human Hair Germinal Matrix Cells (HHGMC) provided by Innoprot are isolated by ScienCell Research Labs from human hair follicles. HHGMC are cryopreserved at passage one culture and delivered frozen.

Innoprot also offers optimized medium and reagents for the growth of Human Hair Germinal Matrix Cells which are quality tested together and guaranteed to give maximum performance as a global solution for in vitro HHGMC culture.


The Germinal matrix is an area of reproducing cells situated around the papilla at the base of the hair bulb. It is the source of hair growth and transfer melanin to hair to give it pigmentation. During the active hair growth phase, cells in the matrix rapidly grow and differentiate, causing the hair to elongate. Cells of the germinal matrix under go a process called keratinization, which is the formation of a layer of the protein keratin, keeping the hair from falling out. Hair follicle has a complex immunologic profile, with immunologically “privileged” matrix cells. Follicular cell implantation studies indicate that germinal matrix cells may induce new hair follicle formation by implanted dermal papilla cells.
