lung epithelial cells stained for zo-1 and cilia


Clonetics™ Primary Airway Cells from normal, asthma, COPD and cystic fibrosis donors.

Extensive donor information including cystic fibrosis genotyping data available for diseased cells.

Pre-screened and guaranteed-to-perform airway cells in Air-Liquid Interface Culture.

Clonetics™ Primary Human Airway Cells

Clonetics™ Primary Human Airway Cells have been isolated from respiratory epithelium and endothelium, smooth muscle tissue and fibroblasts.


They can be useful in the study of respiration, mucin production, cilia formation and airway model cell culture.


Lonza airway cells are derived from reliable source of normal and diseased tissue. Compare diseased cells to normal primary cells for a better understanding of effects.


We offer broad donor variety for each cell type along with extensive donor information for diseased cells such as duration of disease, medications etc. Contact our scientific support team for detailed donor information. All airway cells test negative for bacterial, fungal, and mycoplasma contamination. Human cells test negative for HIV-1, Hepatitis-B, and Hepatitis-C. Most Clonetics™ Primary Cells are also available as proliferating cells in either flasks or plates, or as pellets in RNALater®.
