Since 1985, Intracel has been the premier leader in manufacturing custom made, highest quality cardiovascular disease research products. We provide overnight handling on a wide range of fresh and custom made lipoproteins as well as media supplements. Unlike other brands, our lipoprotein products are freshly made every three to six weeks and distributed worldwide. We also provide customer specific needs such as bulk production contracts and alternative package sizes.
Our lipoproteins (VLDL, LDL, HDL) are derived from fresh human plasma that has tested negative for Hepatitis C, HIV-1 and -2 antibodies as well as Hepatitis B surface antigen and HIV-1 antigen. They are isolated every three weeks by ultracentrifugation yielding pure, intact, native particles. Modified lipoproteins (Acetylated LDL and Oxidized LDL) are produced from the most current lot of native LDL. DiI labeled lipoproteins (VLDL, LDL, HDL, Acetylated LDL, Oxidized LDL) are manufactured every six weeks. Biotinylated lipoproteins (LDL, HDL, Oxidized LDL) are manufactured as ordered to ensure the utmost freshness for your research needs.
Our human lipoprotein deficient serum (LPDS) is derived from normal healthy male AB serum that has tested negative for HBsAG, HIV 1 / 2, HIV-1 AG or HIV-1 NAT, HCV and Syphilis. Human lipoprotein deficient plasma (LPDP) is derived from fresh human plasma that has tested negative for Hepatitis C, HIV-1 and -2 antibodies as well as Hepatitis B surface antigen and HIV-1 antigen. Fetal bovine lipoprotein deficient serum (FBLPDS) is derived from USDA approved fetal bovine serum that has tested negative for bovine viruses. After the lipoproteins have been removed by ultracentrifugation, the serum/plasma is dialyzed extensively. The protein concentration is adjusted to 35 mg/ml. The LPDS/LPDP/FBLPDS is membrane filtered, packaged aseptically and frozen. Cell culture medium containing 3-5 mg/ml of deficient sera is approximately equivalent to medium containing 10% human serum or fetal bovine serum.
