Data Sheet

Human Retinal Endothelial Cells (HREC) from Innoprot have been isolated from healthy retinal tissue. HREC are cryopreserved at passage one and delivered frozen. HREC are also characterized by immunofluorescent method with antibodies to VWF/Factor VIII and CD31 (P-CAM) and by uptake of DiI-Ac-LDL.

Innoprot also offers optimized medium and reagents for the growth of Human Retinal Endothelial Cells which are quality tested together and guaranteed to give maximum performance as a global solution for in vitro endothelial cells culture.


The eye contains highly vascularised and completely avascular tissues in close apposition. This specialized anatomy requires tight regulation of the balance between vascular quiescence and vascular growth. Retinal vascularization is a coordinated interaction of vascular cells, including endothelial cells, pericytes, and astrocytes, and a balanced production of positive and negative regulatory factors. In eye diseases associated with angiogenesis, this delicate balance is disturbed. Angiogenesis plays a crucial role in disorders responsible for most blindness such as diabetic retinopathy, retinopathy of prematurity, age-related macular degeneration, as well as a large number of other eye conditions. Studies of retinal capillary endothelial cells have shed light on the earliest stages of diabetic retinopathy and other diseases of the retinal microvasculature. Human retinal endothelial cell cultures will surely continue to provide an in vitro model in the pathophysiological studies of vascular diseases in the human eye
