Summary for Patent: 5,739,033
Title: Physiological cell separation and method of separating cells using same
Abstract:An aqueous composition, initially present as a two-phase gradient, useful for separation of two cell types, such as islet cells from acinar cells, is disclosed, as well as a method of separating the cells. The composition is comprised of a water soluble, metabolically inert substance which maintains density, osmolarity and pH in the presence of cells, and a physiological cold storage solution comprising viscosity modifiers to increase the viscosity and osmotically active impermeant agents for suppressing cold-induced cellular edema, and also comprising a physiological solution capable of maintaining viable cells. These solutions are present in various combinations in a concentration sufficient to provide a first solution with a density greater than both cell types in their natural state, and less than the second cell type after incubation in said solution, and a second solution having a density less than that of both cell types. The system is allowed to stand or is centrifuged to separate the cells.
