KBI provides cell culture services, with focus on pancreatic islets research in non-human primates. The specific aims are:
· To optimize isolation procedures to obtain high yields of functional pancreatic islet cells from non-human primates
· To provide pancreatic islet cells for research applications
KBI can measure Glucose-Induced Insulin Secretion (GIIS), a functional assay that can determine the effects of high glucose concentrations and different incubation conditions on pancreatic islet secretory machinery.
