GIBCO® CTS™ KnockOut™ SR XenoFree Medium, when formulated as a complete medium, enables the growth and expansion of human embryonic stem cells (hESC) and human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSC) in a cell culture medium containing only human-derived or human recombinant proteins, to facilitate the transition of hESC and hiPSC research from the bench to the clinic.

The CTS™ product line enables you to reduce your burden in qualifying reagents during your transition from research applications to clinical applications.

• Defined, xenofree medium for hESC⁄iPSC stem cell culture.
• First-to-market xenofree hESC⁄iPSC product intended for Ex Vivo tissue and cell culture processing applications.

CTS™ KnockOut™ SR XenoFree Medium does not contain bovine or other non-human, animal-derived components. Besides pluripotent stem cell culture expansion and maintenance, CTS™ KnockOut™ SR XenoFree Medium can be used for hESC⁄hiPSC cryopreservation, derivation, and differentiation studies.
