Hi everybody,
I need a ready source of chondrocytes (the origin does not matter).  Is
there some company I can buy it from?
I have searched through the literature for methods to harvest chondrocytes
from cartilage which were then subsequently cultured.  But there is little
information on the cell number (concentration) obtainable from the isolation
of chondrocytes from cartilage.  Is there anyone who has done this before?
Please advise.
Thank you very much.
