• Stem Cell Media

    Human mesenchymal stem cells (Catalog no. SC00A1) were plated at 5,000/cm² in a Falcon BD TC-coated T-25 flasks and maintained in serum containing media (Cat. No. SC00B1) and serum-free/xeno-free media (Cat. No. SC00B3) in reduced O2 environment (1% O2, 5% CO2, 90% N2) at 37°C in a humidified chamber. When cells became 80-90% confluent, they were subcultured, counted on a Beckermen Z2 particle counter (range 10-30uM), and passaged. Doubling time of 20-25hrs were calculated in each pass using ln(2*dT)/ln(Cf/Ci), where dT is the time, in hours, from inoculation to detachment; Ci is the initial number of cells plated and Cf is the final number of cells recovered from subculture. There were no apparent differences in doubling time with TC-coated flasks and Laminin/Fibronectin treated flasks.

    Testimonial: “We tested the effects of MSCGroTM defined medium using several different lots of human adult primary stem cells and found that MSCGro supports a more robust proliferation rate than normal undefined media. This provided shorter doubling times and increased cellular yield, and maintained the cells in an undifferentiated state. We also found that MSCGro medium is stable under normal laboratory conditions for an extended time period compared to other defined media.” Ben Buehrer, VP and CSO, Zen-Bio
