Geltrex hESC-Qualified, Ready-To-Use, Reduced Growth Factor Basement Membrane Matrix is a soluble form of basement membrane extracted from murine Engelbreth-Holm-Swarm (EHS) tumors. This pre-diluted version of the matrix can be taken directly from the refrigerator and dispensed into cell culture plates without further handling. Geltrex hESC-Qualified Ready-To-Use basement membrane matrix is optimized for stem cell culture applications using StemPro hESC SFM. For stem cell culture using the StemFlex Medium or Essential 8 Media System, use Geltrex LDEV-Free, hESC-Qualified, Reduced Growth Factor Basement Membrane Matrix.

Geltrex hESC-Qualified Ready-To-Use matrix is:

• Consistent—pre-dilution at a concentration of 1:100 ensures optimal protein concentration for stem cell attachment to standard cell culture plates
• Stable—storage at 4°C eliminates overnight thawing on ice
• Cost effective— the ready-to-use format saves multiple preparation steps and potential for product failure

Reduced variability
Geltrex hESC-Qualified Ready-To-Use matrix is provided as a 1:100 dilution in a buffered solution that can be added directly to cell culture plates for coating. Each lot is prepared at the appropriate protein concentration for optimal stem cell attachment, which minimizes the need to calculate dilution schemes for every lot of matrix.

Designed for 4°C storage for the life of the product, this matrix can be kept in the refrigerator along with your cell culture media—no more overnight thawing in clumsy ice baths and no risk of premature gelling. In addition, every lot is functionally qualified using human embryonic stem cells and tested to ensure it is free of lactose dehydrogenase elevating virus (LDEV), making it safe for all cell culture labs.

Cost effective
Geltrex hESC-Qualified Ready-To-Use matrix eliminates multiple steps—no more freezing, thawing, diluting, and aliquoting. This product is a true time saver.
