Gibco CTS OpTmizer Pro SFM, no phenol red, is a novel serum-free medium (SFM) developed for the growth and expansion of human T lymphocytes (e.g., CD4+, CD8+, polyclonal, or antigen specific) used in allogeneic cell therapies. This medium improves central memory phenotype and cell growth by shifting the cell’s metabolism. The result is a larger population of central memory cells in a shorter period of time.
Benefits • Maintains central memory T cells further into expansion and is well suited for longer workflows (>15 days) • Offers >90% (average) T cell fold expansion (from healthy donors) compared to CTS OpTmizer medium • Modest increases in central memory cells at early stage in expansion protocol result in larger cell yields at harvest • Helps achieve the same number of cells in a shorter duration • Ideally suited to the production of allogeneic therapies
Features • Serum-free and xeno-free • Supports high density cultures in static cultures • New film (Aegis) and bag design allow compatibility with closed systems • Supports T-cell activation using Dynabeads magnetic beads, soluble antibodies, and stimulatory antibody-presenting cell protocols
Increased efficiency and consistence performance CTS OpTmizer Pro SFM, no phenol red, is serum-free and xeno-free and supports high density cultures in static cultures. It displays consistent performance in the support of T-cell expansion with better central memory phenotype in a shorter time.
Enhanced expansion CTS OpTmizer Pro SFM, no phenol red, increases the number of central memory cells at an early stage in the expansion process and maintains T-cell functionality.
Enhanced design and compatibility Use of Thermo Scientific Aegis5-14 Film allows compatibility with closed systems. This film is a five-layer cast film produced in a cGMP facility. The outer layer is a polyester elastomer coextruded with an ethyl vinyl alcohol (EVOH) barrier layer and an ultra-low density polyethylene product contact layer. Aegis5-14 Film is manufactured using no animal derived components.
