  • We are the qualified, solution-oriented experts you have been looking for.
  • We provide you with one of the best cell portfolios for your research needs.
  • We fill the gap and build a bridge between innovative research and the special requests of the clinical sector.
  • Get proficient recommendations and info first hand.

Take the opportunity and trust our expertise and rely on our products in the field of Primary Cells.

Hundreds of Primary Cells are waiting for you.

We offer more than 900 cell types.

Together with our strong partner network, PELOBiotech offers more than 900 cell types together with selective cell culture media, suitable for various tissues.
As we know, Primary Cells are extremely important for basic research and applied research. So if you are already working with Primary Cells, you should use those from the organ of interest. Also, you may get better and more predictive results with Primary Cells than with cell lines.

That is why we have so many Primary Cells in our range that match different tissues. Such as cell types belonging to the following tissue groups and organs: Brain, Blood, Cardio-Vascular, Skin cells and Cells of Inner organs or the Skeletal System. But we do not only offer cells from healthy donors but also sick ones. In our portfolio we have human & animal cells. To name some cells we have from diseased donors:

Cancer cells, COPD, Smokers, Diabetes type 2, Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis and Neurological Disorders or even pre-treated cells.

Our grade products, Primary Cells for highest demands.

We are excellent experts in the field of cells.



Epithelial Cells. High-quality cells that show perfect results in interaction with media.



All cell systems are offered with corresponding media. We have different media for different solutions.


Essential Extras

That certain something for your cell culture needs. Here we talk about: reagents, coating and matrices, dissociation, cryo- and cold-preservation, tools for stem cell differentiation, etc.



„Do not hesitate to ask us about the right cells for your project, we are always happy to share our expertise with you.“

Dr. Lothar Steeb and Dr. Peter Frost, CEOs PELOBIOTECH GmbH

Meet Dr. Lothar Steeb.

Get to know our Primary Cell expert.

Lothar has more than 30 years of experience in the field of cell culture research and media development. He earned his Dr. at the DKFZ (Deutsches Krebsforschungszentrum) in Heidelberg. Since that time when he isolated and cultivated keratinocytes and Endothelial Cells, he started to love Primary Cell culture. His profession and hobby are to generate the best culture conditions and tools for all Primary Cells. Today he leads the F&E and production departments at PELOBiotech and is also responsible for numerous research projects with our academic partners. Excellent growing and excellent working culture systems are his favorite.

We would like to share with you the specialist knowledge of our CSO Lothar Steeb who is passionate about the multifaceted nature of Primary Cells.

Every research has its challenge. Where is yours?

We’re proud to assist scientists and researchers like you!

With that medium our cells grow perfectly


"I’m using PELOBiotech’s Skeletal Muscle Cell Growth Medium for my own isolated primary cells from clinics. With that medium our cells grow perfectly well and we love the reliability of the medium and the service of the company."

Epithelial cells for 3D culture are easy to handle


“I used human primary pancreatic epithelial cells for 3D culture and immunostaining. They are easy to handle and I could expand them for 3 passages. Overall these cells are useful source for study pancreatic epithelium in humans, thought with limited passage number and modification.”

Very pleased with the stable growth performance of my cells


"I´ve been very pleased with the stable growth performance of my cells with the new medium Endothelial Growth medium EASY from Cellovations. I will continue using it for my experiments."

10/10: Surprised that you can find this kind of customer service

TU Delft, NL

"I reached out to PELObiotech to get a specific cell line + the optimal cell culture medium for our laboratory and Dr. Arista was the one assisting me in this whole process. Their response time was incredibly fast, their customer services more than satisfactory and their planning ahead made the whole order/delivery process of the items (they had to be imported from the USA) smooth, efficient and once again, very fast. Pleasantly surprised that we can still find this type of customer service/approach nowadays. 10/10 would recommend!”

So fast and helpful


Dr. Arista has been extremely helpful and patient in assisting me in placing orders for cells and recommending appropriate media and protocols. Any orders I have placed have arrived faster than expected and have grown without issue.

Attentive to customer's needs


PELOBiotech has shown a very helpful attitude and they are attentive to their customer's needs. I have only good things to say about them and can highly recommend them.

Contributed to optimal experimental condition


"PELOBiotech’s media have contributed to optimal experimental conditions for my endothelial cells and the service, especially the scientific support, was outstanding.”
