Description

Developed for Human Mesenchymal Stem Cell Culture

StemPro® MSC SFM is a serum-free medium (SFM) specially formulated for the growth and expansion of human mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). StemPro® MSC SFM enables superior human MSC growth and increased consistency compared to classical serum-supplemented medium (DMEM + 10% FBS). Using StemPro® MSC SFM, human MSCs can be expanded beyond 5 passages while still maintaining their tri-lineage mesoderm differentiation potential (i.e., ability to differentiate into osteogenic, chondrogenic and adipogenic lineages). Each lot of StemPro® MSC SFM is qualified using a human MSC performance assay and human MSCs growing in serum-supplemented medium can be transitioned directly into StemPro® MSC SFM with little or no adaptation required. In addition, StemPro® MSC SFM facilitates expansion of MSCs directly from primary human bone marrow.

For human ex vivo tissue and cell culture processing applications. CAUTION: When used as a medical device, Federal Law restricts this device to sale by or on the order of a physician.
