Developed for the optimal proliferation of mesenchymal stem cells, allowing them to expand through multiple passages while retaining the ability to differentiate into osteoblasts, adipocytes, and chondrocytes.
Highlights: - Easy-to-use kit. - Maintains mesenchymal stem cell pluripotency, normal karyotype, and proliferation capability. - Certified formulation for culturing a vast majority of mesenchymal stem cells. - Batch-to-batch consistency.
Stability/Storage: - All products should be stored in the dark. - Mesenchymal Stem Cell Basal Medium is stable at 2-8oC for up to one year; other components are stable at -20oC for up to two years. - Products should be discarded beyond the labeled expiration date. - Once prepared, the fully supplemented complete medium can be stored for up to one month when stored in the dark at 2-8oC. - For optimal performance, repeated warm-cooling and freeze-thawing should be avoided.
Quality Control: Tested for performance on mesenchymal stem cells. The standard evaluation includes: 1. Sterility test (bacteria, fungi, and mycoplasma). 2. pH test. 3. Osmolality. 4. Endotoxin.
Intended Use: Intended for non-human laboratory research use only.
