Data Sheet

Human Corneal Epithelial Cells (HCEpiC) provided by Innoprot are isolated by ScienCell Research Laboratories from human cornea. HCEpiC are cryopreserved on passage one and delivered frozen.  HCEpiC are guaranteed to further expand for 10 population doublings at the conditions provided by Innoprot.

Innoprot also offers optimized medium and reagents for the growth of Porcine Corneal Epithelial Cells which are quality tested together and guaranteed to give maximum performance as a global solution for in vitro PCEpiC culture.


The cornea is a unique tissue for two reasons, the transparency function and the synthesis of most of its proteins because the cornea is an avascular tissue. The corneal epithelium plays a role in the innate immune response by sensing the presence of pathogens and providing signals that activate the corneal defense system. It also highly expresses aldehyde dehydrogenase to protect against UV- and 4-hydroxynonenal-induced cellular damage. Corneal epithelial basal cell proliferation is controlled by a host of cytokines, e.g., epidermal growth factor, that activate their cognate receptors in the deeper layers of the epithelium. Instead of testing products in the eyes of animals, cultured corneal epithelial cells could be used for toxicology tests in in vitro models and for studying the molecular mechanisms involved in regulating human corneal epithelial cell differentiation.
