Animal Product-free Human Stem Cell Culture Medium

OCR Number: 
OCR 4056
Description: 
  • Animal-free product that avoids pathogen or immunogenic contamination of animal products.
  • Improved cryoprotection viability to 50-60%.
  • Growth as good as or better than the culture which using serum and/or conditional medium.
  • Many applications:
    • Differentiate hESC into different tissue/stem/progenitor cells in vitro
    • use as an in vitro model for studying cell proliferation and differentiation
    • drug screening platform for cell proliferation, differentiation, and regeneration
    • Produce proteins by transfection or transduction of DNA or RNA
    • Deliverance of different genes into hESC for research or commercial usage
    • Establish hESC bank with embryo has different genetic background and MHC
    • use as a base for unlimited source of cells for therapy
