Cell Isolation & Tissue Dissociation


Application Note
Use of Liberase TM in stem cell isolation
> Read more
Tissue dissociation and cell isolation are key proteolytic enzyme applications in cell biology. Proteases are required for the disruption of the extracellular matrix to release individual cells from tissues for primary cell culture, or to harvest cultured cells for transfer to a new substrate (secondary culture).

Tissue Dissociation Selection Guide
Get a comprehensive overview of TDE products and applications.
Generally, methods for preparing cell suspensions are classified into three categories:
  • Mechanically by mincing, sieving, or scratching off
  • Chemically in the absence of divalent cations
  • Enzymatically by digesting with collagenase, Dispase®, trypsin, papain, elastase, pronase, hyaluronidase, or with selected combinations of these enzymes
  Many tissue dissociation and cell isolation protocols use a combination of the above categories. The choice of procedure will depend on personal experience, methods described in the literature, nature and amount of available tissue, as well as the intended use of the dissociated cells (for a review, see MM Bashor, 1979; JW Pollard and JM Walker, 1984; RI Freshney, 1994; C Ricordi, 1995; MWC Hatton et al., 1983).
