Data Sheet

Human Non-Pigment Ciliary Epithelial Cells (HNPCEC) provided by Innoprot are isolated by ScienCell Research Labs from human ciliary body. HNPCEC are cryopreserved at primary culture and delivered frozen. HNPCEC are guaranteed to further expand for 15 population doublings in the condition provided by ScienCell Research Laboratories.

Innoprot also offers optimized medium and reagents for the growth of Human Non-Pigment Ciliary Epithelial Cells which are quality tested together and guaranteed to give maximum performance as a global solution for in vitro HNPCEC.


The ciliary epithelium rests upon the folds of the ciliary processes. It consists of two layers of cells which appear structurally and functionally distinct. The basal membranes of the pigmented ciliary epithelial cells face the stroma, and the basal membranes of the non-pigmented ciliary epithelial cells (NPCEC) abut the aqueous humor. The NPCEC is largely responsible for the formation of aqueous humor in the mammalian eye. They transfer solute from the stroma of the ciliary processes into the posterior chamber. The resulting osmotic gradient drives water from the stroma into the aqueous humor. It is only the NPCEC cells form a complete permeability barrier, since they displays tight junctions linking adjoining cells.
