FFPE Cancer Cell Line Controls

Consistent cancer cell line controls for your research

Manufactured using a proprietary process that maintains both cell morphology and preserves nucleic acids and proteins, CellMax™ FFPE cancer cell line products offer affordable and consistent controls from 50 tumor cell lines, without compromising quality or consistency. Our cell line controls combat issues experienced with traditional cell or tissue-based control specimens such as intra specimen variation, lot-to-lot variations and inconsistent biomolecule quality.

CellMax™ FFPE controls provide the most flexible cell-based products for immunohistochemistry (IHC), in situ hybridization (ISH) and NGS applications.

Potential Applications

Immunohistochemistry

The CellMax™ slides are perfect controls for immunohistochemical applications. Cells are prepared by standard trypsinization or a proprietary trypsin-free method to best preserve cell surface antigens while inflicting minimal damage that leads to loss of biomarkers.

In situ hybridization

Nucleic acids are perfectly preserved in the CellMax™ cell pellets and are ready for DNA and RNA in situ hybridization.

Quality Control

Our FFPE cancer cell line controls are of the highest quality with the strict manufacturing process ensuring exceptional consistency between slides:

  • Strict passage control
  • Strictly controlled fixation
  • Optimized tissue processing protocol and storage conditions
  • Proprietary manufacturing process
  • High density but well-separated cells
