Satellite cells are widely used as an experimental model in basic research to study muscle regeneration and muscle related diseases. Now your full workflow for the dissociation of skeletal muscles and the subsequent isolation of pure and viable satellite cells can be accomplished in approximately 2.5 hours.
- Fully automated and standardized dissociation of skeletal muscles
- Specialized enzymes for ensured preservation of cell surface epitopes
- Magnetic cell separation to obtain highly pure satellite cells
Standardized muscle dissociation made easy
Struggling with a reliable dissociation protocol for skeletal muscle? See how the gentleMACS™ Dissociators along with the Skeletal Muscle Dissociation Kit, mouse and rat offer you gentle, automated tissue dissociation to obtain single-cell suspensions with excellent viability.
The fastest way to get pure satellite cells
Satellite cells are rare adult stem cells within skeletal muscles bearing the capability of regenerating muscle fibers. Now, MACS® Technology allows for the fast and easy isolation of murine satellite cells from dissociated skeletal muscle.
