The Essential 8 Media system and accompanying reagents provide the most defined and consistent culture conditions for pluripotent stem cells. Each of the recommended reagents across the following workflow is defined and xeno-free, allowing for consistent results every time. Below is an example of a workflow advancing from reprogramming to differentiation utilizing the Essential 8 Media system.
CytoTune-iPS 2.0 Sendai Reprogramming Kit
contains a polycistronic vector which offers an increased reprogramming efficiency up to 1.2%
Essential 8 Mediumcontains only the 8 necessary components needed for stem cell culture enabling more consistent culture
PSC Cryopreservation Kitcontains a xeno-free, ready-to-use cryopreservation medium and a chemically defined recovery supplement, RevitaCell Supplement, that consistently recovers 50% more viable cells post-thaw
