upcyte® microvascular Endothelial Cells
expanded primary cells

The endothelial cells lining blood vessels of the skin share features of endothelial cells elsewhere in the body, but they also exhibit several skin specific characteristics. These include wound healing, control of hemostasis, temperature regulation, and the modulation of inflammation. upcyte® mvECs are isolated from human dermal microvascular vessels
