Liver Hepatocytes are derived from primary normal liver cells. Left liver lob is generally used for isolation of these cells. These cells express cytokeratin 18 and albumin in early passage.

Kosheeka recommends proper safety procedures as described in all scientific literature to be undertaken when handling primary cells. Although primary cells isolated from non-diseased donors are not known to cause disease in healthy adult humans.
Human Material Precaution
All tissues used for isolation are obtained under informed consent and conform to protect the privacy of the donor’s personal health information. It is best to use caution when handling any human cells. We recommend that all human cells be accorded the same level of biosafety consideration as cells known to carry HIV. With infectious virus assays or viral antigen assays, even a negative test result may leave open the possible existence of a latent viral genome.
