Cornela Epithelial Cells

The corneal epithelium plays an essential role in the defense against invading microorganisms and thus, the maintenance of the intact barrier function of this stratified epithelium is of utmost importance.

hTCEpi – hTERT immortalized human corneal epithelial cell line that allow the establishment of a standardized, reproducible cornea barrier model.


  • Toxicological studies and drug delivery
  • Use in phenotypic drug screening, orthogonal screening
  • Getting insights in wound healing and inflammation
  • Study of mechanisms involved in corneal epithelial cell differentiation
