Essential 8 Media System
Just what stem cells need. Nothing they don’t.
Starting with the original formulation, Gibco™ Essential 8™ Medium is our most defined and consistent feeder-free medium for induced pluripotent stem cell culture. It has been optimized for a wide variety of applications to help researchers achieve ultimate control over their PSC culture systems.
Where do you need more control over your PSC Culture?
|PSC maintenance and expansion||Essential 8 Medium||
|Flexible feeding schedule||Essential 8 Flex Medium||
|Embryoid body formation and differentiation||Essential 6™ Medium||
||Essential 8 Medium + RevitaCell Supplement||
|Adaptation from feeder-based media||Essential 8
Non-addictive – Shown to have a non-addictive impact on downstream cell utility unlike other ROCK inhibitors
Expanded applications – Enabling use of Essential 8 medium in applications where cells need additional support
The Essential 8™ Media system and accompanying reagents provide the most defined and consistent culture conditions for pluripotent stem cells. Each of the recommended reagents across the following workflow is defined and xenofree, allowing for consistent results every time. Below is an example of a workflow advancing from reprogramming to differentiation utilizing the Essential 8 Media system.
Essential 8™ Medium contains only the 8 necessary components needed for stem cell culture enabling more consistent culture
PSC Cryopreservation Kit contains a xeno-free, ready-to-use cryopreservation medium and a chemically defined recovery supplement, RevitaCell™ Supplement, that consistently recovers 50% more viable cells post-thaw
Essential 6™ Medium does not contain bFGF which is used to prevent differentiation and maintain pluripotency
