Because the cell line is robust in culture, the research leads to reliable results. As far as I am concerned, there is currently no kidney epithelial cell line available with an equally good predictive value for the human kidney.
The ciPTEC mimics primary renal cells, but you can culture them for a long time without losing their properties. The expression of transporters gives a more accurate response to drugs and toxins. The cells grow fast and are easy to handle.
ciPTEC is a well-accepted in vitro model to screen compounds for their DIKI potential.
