Transepithelial electrical resistance (TEER) is a well-accepted quantitative method to measure the integrity of tight junction dynamics in GI epithelial cell monolayers. TEER values are strong indicators of epithelial cell barrier integrity and permeability, and often used for evaluating transport of potential drug chemicals and related in vitro drug screening assays.
Human TEER Assay GI Epithelial Cell Medium is carefully optimized for measuring GI epithelial barrier function of human GI Epithelial Cells. Attention to detail ensures ideal cell health, viability, performance, physiology, morphology, consistency and data.
Adult and Fetal Colon Epithelial Cell Monolayer
Adult and Fetal Colon Epithelial Cell monolayer cultured in TEER optimized GI Epithelial Cell Medium representing TEER value of samples indicating superior Tight Junction Potential in fetal cells compard to adult cells. Note: Tight Junction Potential is significantly compromised in disease conditions compared to non-disease samples. (In collaboration with UCSD)
Bacterial Infection in Fetal Colon Epithelial Cell Monolayer
Tight Junction Potential is significantly disrupted after bacterial infection. Note: Pretreatment with barrier inducing drug protects the integrity of monolayer tight junction. (In collaboration with UCSD)
CAI media are tested for sterility in order to confirm no bacteria, yeast or fungi contaminate the solutions. The products undergo further quality control for correct pH, osmolality and lack of endotoxins. A panel of different bioassays affirm the media sustain a proper environment for expected cell-type-specific culture, growth, plating, karyotype, physiology, morphology, viability, population doublings, surface markers, cryopreservation, differentiation and/or induction.
