ReproCELL’s Primate ES Cell Medium is a serum-free formulation that was jointly developed by ReproCELL and Kyoto University. This media enabled development of the world’s first human iPS cells in 2007 by Prof Shinya Yamanaka and his colleagues#. Following this breakthrough, ReproCELL’s Primate ES Cell Culture Medium has been successfully adopted for culture of ES and iPS cells by numerous labs throughout the world. This media has been specifically developed to simplify the process of ES and iPS cell development for human and other primate cells. You just need to add bFGF prior to use* and the medium is ready for use.
Each lot is functionally tested by using human iPS cells. Lot-to-lot control of other critical criteria including osmolarity, pH, sterility and mycoplasma. Just add bFGF before use*. No other mixing required. Serum-free
