The retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) comprises hexagonal cells organised into a monolayer that is densely packed with pigment granules. RPE cells play a critical role in visual function and photoreceptor viability.

Clonetics Human RPE cells are a useful tool in the study of age-related macular degeneration, retinistis pigmentosa and gene expression profiles of RPE.

Cryopreserved human primary RPE cells are packaged at passage 2 and contain 500,000 cells per vial.

Performance and quality-control testing includes: epithelial markers expression - 90%; pancytokeratin positive; fibroblast contamination - 10% positive cells; tight conjunction - 90%; endothelial marker (CD31) - 1% positive cells.
