Cell Culture

In the cell culture labs we cultivate primary human and murine bone cells, progenitor cells, ligament fibroblasts and cells from the nucleus and annulus of intervertebral discs. Additionally, we have a range of osteoblastic and fibroblastic cell lines (human origin: TERT4, hFOB1.19, SAOS, MG-63, murine origin: MC3T3, MLOY-4, BALB, L929) in our cell bank.

Beside the usual equipment of a modern cell culture laboratory, different special apparatus for the investigation of the influence of mechanical stresses on connective tissue cells are available for the application of strain or pressure. The machines were developed in our institute.
