Research at Mass General
The mission of the Cell Resource Core (CRC) at Massachusetts General Hospital is to provide high quality primary hepatocytes and supporting tissues to researchers. We use an innovative, reliable and affordable process.
By utilizing a new perfusion technique that was developed at Mass General to preserve the viability of liver cells prior to transplantation, the CRC has been able to increase the viable yield of high quality hepatocytes from donor livers. As a nonprofit resource core, we can provide these cell cultures to researchers at affordable prices.
Cells can be delivered to your lab shortly after isolation. We use a 24/7 vehicle courier service for all orders within three hours of our facility.
Our highly capable staff comprises physicians, researchers and technicians that are available to help you with questions regarding cell handling or experiment design.
