Profile

With a comprehensive portfolio of 7,000 high-quality cell culture and cell biology products, we empower scientists and researchers around the world to do vital and groundbreaking work.

We also offer comprehensive support from our own scientists, who’ll be with you for every research need or question you might have. Our PromoCell Academy delivers professional training, or we can come to you, with onsite training at your facility in German or English.

Your science is moving the world forward – and we’re here to help.

History

PromoCell was founded in Heidelberg, Germany, in 1990.

We began by isolating and providing primary human cells in Europe – about 25 products in total. Over the next two decades, the range of products expand dramatically, and PromoCell became central to groundbreaking scientific and medical research around the world.

Timeline:

1995: PromoCell’s first cytokines and growth factors were manufactured.

2001: We added additional cell and growth media products to our range, including enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs) for cell analysis.

2004: The PromoCell Academy opened, helping researchers from across the world improve their research techniques.

2006: Our portfolio expanded to about 300 products, and we opened a US sales office.

2010: We began to offer new blood and stem cell products, including mesenchymal stem cells.

2017: We introduced our cancer cell culture portfolio, with isolation and cultivation of tumour cells (neoplasm) and cell lines.

Today, we’re proud to offer over 7,000 world-class cell and biology products, and employing a team of over 100, most of them PhD scientists.

  • Flexible
    We’re responsive to the needs of our customers, and to a changing world, and ready to adapt so we can all make progress together.
  • Reliable
    In both science and business, reliability is crucial. We always strive to be a company that people can trust.
  • Expert
    We have a huge range of experience – but we’re always ready to question what we know, so we can keep learning.

Offering tailored diagnostic tools to various scientific industries and organisations throughout Australia and New Zealand, we understand the importance of only partnering with reputable suppliers. With this in mind, we are proud to list ourselves as PromoCell Human Primary Cells distributors for human primary blood cells, stem cells and much more.

PromoCell is widely considered a leading name in its specific industry and is used by scientists the world over. Their dedication to producing premium quality products make them a valuable inclusion to our range.
