  • MesenPRO RS Medium:  Reduced serum (2%) medium for mesenchymal stem cell expansion

  • StemPro MSC SFM: Serum-free medium specially formulated for the growth and expansion of human mesenchymal stem cells

  • StemPro MSC SFM XenoFree: XenoFree media for human mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) culture

  • StemPro LipoMax™: Human derived lipoprotein-based cell culture supplement for stem cells

Serum and serum replacement

  • CTS KnockOut SR XenoFree Medium: enables the growth and expansion of hESCs and hiPSCs in a cell culture medium containing only human-derived or human recombinant proteins, to facilitate the transition of hESC and hiPSC research from the bench to the clinic

  • KnockOut Serum Replacement: Serum-free formulation designed to replace FBS in MSC culture

  • Mesenchymal Stem Cell Qualified Fetal Bovine Serum: Specially tested for the ability to support the expansion and clonal enumeration of mesenchymal stem cells

Matricies and substrates

  • CTS CELLstart Substrate: a defined substrate, containing only components of human origin (xeno-free) that supports hESCs attachment and expansion of undifferentiated colonies in serum-free medium without the need for feeder cells

  • CELLstart: The first xeno-free substrate for attachment & expansion of mesenchymal stem cells that is fully defined, has better lot-to-lot consistency & is produced under cGMP
