At BioIVT, our wide breadth of isolated cells allows us to touch many different areas of research. From oncology to autoimmune and everywhere in between, our capabilities cover a variety of disease indications and research applications. A struggle that researchers sometimes face is which cells to use in their studies and when to use them. Primary cells, dissociated tumor cells, immune cells, and cell lines all have their place in research. Some overlap but also have their own niche. Immortalized cell lines have been a popular research tool for over 50 years, and while they remain useful for researchers, advances in technology have allowed for the development of methods to isolate and culture other cell types that may be more appropriate for your research.
