CellEDIT - CRISPR-Edited HeLa Cell Line

Let us support you with a custom and high-quality engineered HeLa cell line.

We’ll take care of the CRISPR editing of your HeLa cells so you can focus on your next discoveries.

HeLa cells represent the first immortal human cells to be grown in culture and the basis for countless significant scientific breakthroughs. They were isolated in 1951 from a cervical carcinoma derived from a 31-year-old patient.

HeLa Cell Line Applications

 Cancer Research: HeLa cells are extensively used to study the biology of cancer, including tumor growth, metastasis, and the effects of various cancer treatments.


 Virology: These cells are a critical tool in virology research, helping scientists understand the life cycles of viruses, how viruses infect cells, and the cellular responses to viral infections. HeLa cells have been instrumental in the development of vaccines, including the polio vaccine.


 Genetic Research: HeLa cells are used to explore gene function, regulation, and expression, making them valuable for understanding genetic diseases and developing gene therapies.


 Drug Testing and Development: The cell line is commonly used in high-throughput screening assays to evaluate the efficacy and toxicity of new pharmaceutical compounds, aiding in the drug discovery and development process.


 Toxicology Studies: HeLa cells are utilized to assess the cytotoxic effects of various chemicals and environmental agents, providing insights into their safety and potential health risks.
