VitaCyte: Unravelling Cell Isolation

VitaCyte is committed to offering the broadest product line of consistent and reliable cell/tissue dissociation enzymes in the industry. Our highly purified enzymes can be used reliably in cell isolation for years, not just months. Their use directly increases research productivity by contributing to standardization of cell isolation methods that, in turn, enables more confident comparison of results — providing a deeper, shared understanding of cell function.

Featured Products

Most collagenase and protease products stand on a firm foundation of decades of research and use in labs across the world.  VitaCyte's unique contributions are simple. The first is our formulations. Superior manufacturing processes give us better control over key enzyme fermentation processes, which means no need for lot testing because our products are more consistent than most. Second, we know the science. So when you have a question, an issue, or an idea for a new application, you get your answers from the source. 


DE Collagenase Optimization Kit

Flexible and affordable, our optimization kit provides one 100 mg pack size from each of the five formulations comprising the full spectrum of DE Collagenase products.


CIzyme AS Blend

CIzyme AS is a collagenase-protease blend, specifically developed for efficiently isolating adipose derived stromal cells (ADSC) from human adipose tissue.


Collagenase Gold

Collagenase Gold is a low protease, enriched product developed with an additional purification process, optimizing it for higher yields with human islets.
