Mesenchymal Stem Cells Have New Cell Culture Environment

BD Mosaic(TM) mesenchymal stem cell serum-free cell culture environment increases cell expansion while decreasing culture time.

BD Biosciences, a segment of BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company), announced the availability of the new BD Mosaic(TM) Mesenchymal Stem Cell Serum-Free (hMSC SF), a complete cell culture environment for human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) derived from bone marrow.

The BD Mosaic hMSC cell culture environment is designed to provide cell expansion in a shorter culture time--about half the time of traditional serum-based media. Starting with a low minimum seeding density (3,000-4,000 cells / cm2), BD Mosaic can achieve two or more doublings per passage without re-feeding between passages. Such performance can help deliver experimental results faster and lower total cost, as well as reduce handling and potential contamination.

"An intrinsic property of mesenchymal stem cells is their ability to differentiate into various somatic tissues," said Gregory Crescenzi, Marketing Manager, BD Biosciences. "Mesenchymal Stem Cells expand using the BD Mosaic hMSC SF cell culture environment and reliably retain their multipotency, even after many passages."

The performance provided by the BD Mosaic hMSC cell culture environment, coupled with its lot-to-lot consistency, can offer reliable results with speed and confidence. The serum-free composition lessens variability and potential contamination events to further streamline the cell culture process and reduce risk.

The BD Mosaic hMSC cell culture environment includes the expansion medium, a media supplement and an advanced cell culture surface coating. It is the first product in BD's line of next-generation environments for the expansion of stem cells.
