Product FAQ

Can I use CTS OpTmizer T Cell Expansion SFM for culture and expansion of mouse T cells? If not, which medium would you recommend?

Answer

We have not tested this medium on mouse T cells. If you're looking for a serum-free medium to culture mouse T cells, you can try AIM V Medium (Cat. No. 12055083 or 12055091). For mouse cells, we recommend adding 50 µM beta-mercaptoethanol (Cat. No. 21985023).
