Primary cells are taken directly from living tissue (e.g. biopsy material) and cultured in vitro. As opposed to continuous cell lines (e.g. tumor), primary cells are known for their virtue of retaining most of the characteristics of the original tissue from which they are derived in the first place.

abm is one of the global leaders in primary cells. A result of years of in-house research and development and cooperative endeavours with prestigious research institutions worldwide, abm has successfully accumulated a large number of primary cells to provide for a wide-selection of research projects for our clients.
