Overview

The Neonatal Cardiomyocyte Isolation Kit, rat has been developed for the untouched isolation of vital cardiomyocytes for neonaltal rats (P0-P3). Enriched cardiomyocytes are fully functional and can be used for downstream applications.

Detailed product information

Background information

One of the most used experimental model in cardiac research is the isolation of vital cardiac cells from neonatal hearts. Especially the isolation and subsequent culture of cardiomyocytes for biochemical, physiological, pharmacological and morphological studies has an high impact in the field of cardiovascular research. The Neonatal Cardiomyocyte Isolation Kit, rat has been designed for the enrichment of untouched neonatal cardiomyocytes from dissociated hearts from rat neonates. Non-cardiomyocytes are directly magnetically labeled by utilizing a cocktail of MicroBead-conjugated antibodies specific for non-cardiomyocytes. Isolation of pure unlabeled cardiomyocytes is achieved by depletion of magnetically labeled cells. The isolation of cardiomyocytes has been tested utilizing neonates aged from postnatal day 0 (P0) to postnatal day (P3). For opimimal results, the Neonatal Heart Dissociation Kit has to be used prior cardiomyocyte isolation using this kit.

Downstream applications

  • Enrichment of untouched cardiomyocytes from neonatal rat
  • hearts (P0–3).
  • Culture or direct use of enriched cardiomyocytes for biochemical,
  • physiological, pharmacological, and morphological studies.
