Functionally Immortalized


Osteoblasts are responsible for bone formation. InSCREENeX offers human osteoblasts immortalized with the help of the CI-SCREEN technology. The technology and the characterization of the cell line is described in our recently published Nature Communications paper [Lipps et al., 2018].
