Back to top


Neural Stem Cell Serum Free Medium that provides superior expansion of human NSC's compared to competitive products.

• Supports differentiation capability into astrocytes, oligodendrocytes and neurons
• Supports adherent or spheroid cultures
• Developed for Human Neural Stem Cell Culture

StemPro NSC SFM is a serum-free medium (SFM) specially formulated for the growth and expansion of human neural stem cells (NSCs). StemPro® NSC SFM enables superior human NSC expansion of both adherent and spheroid cultures derived from human embryonic stem cells or fetal tissue compared to existing commercial products. StemPro NSC SFM also maintains the multipotential differentiation capability into astrocytes, oligodendrocytes and neurons. Each lot of StemPro® NSC SFM is cGMP manufactured and qualified using a human NSC proliferation assay.
