  • Mesenchymal Stem Cell Basal Medium for Adipose, Umbilical and Bone Marrow-derived MSCs (ATCC® PCS-500-030)

    ATCC® Number: PCS-500-030

    Quantity: 485 mL
    Storage: 4 to 8°C, protect from light
    Applications:

    Mesenchymal Stem Cell Basal Medium for Adipose, Umbilical and Bone Marrow-derived MSCs is a sterile, phenol red-free, liquid tissue culture medium intended for use as one component in a complete ATCC® Primary Cell Solutions™ system. This low serum (2% FBS) system is designed to support mesenchymal stem cells derived from various normal human tissues including lipoaspirates and umbilical cord. Mesenchymal Stem Cell Basal Medium for Adipose, Umbilical and Bone Marrow-derived MSCs contains essential and non-essential amino acids, vitamins, other organic compounds, trace minerals and inorganic salts. To support the proliferation and plating efficiency of various types of adult stem cells, Mesenchymal Stem Cell Basal Medium must be supplemented with the appropriate cell-specific growth kit. When using this complete media system, the growth of undifferentiated mesenchymal stem cells is supported without the use of feeder layers, extracellular matrix proteins or other substrates. 

    1. For mesenchymal stem cells derived from human lipoaspirates (e.g., Adipose-Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells; Normal, Human, ATCC PCS-500-011) or umbilical cord (Umbilical Cord-Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells; Normal, Human, ATCC PCS-500-010), supplement Mesenchymal Stem Cell Basal Medium for Adipose, Umbilical and Bone Marrow-derived MSCs with the Mesenchymal Stem Cell Growth Kit for Adipose and Umbilical-derived MSCs –Low serum (ATCC PCS-500-040).
    2. For mesenchymal stem cells derived from bone marrow (Bone Marrow-derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells; Normal, Human, ATCC PCS-500-012) supplement Mesenchymal Stem Cell Basal Medium for Adipose, Umbilical and Bone Marrow-derived MSCs with the Mesenchymal  Stem Cell Growth Kit for Bone Marrow-derived MSCs (ATCC PCS-500-041)
    3. Optional media supplements:
      1. Gentamicin-Amphotericin B Solution (ATCC PCS-999-025)
      2. Penicillin-Streptomycin-Amphotericin B Solution (ATCC PCS-999-002)
      3. Phenol Red (ATCC PCS-999-001)

    Product Format: frozen 5 mL
    Comments:
    Each lot of CellMatrix Gel is shown to promote the attachment of hESCs/hiPSCs and to maintain hESCs/hiPSCs in a pluripotent state as determined by the expression of Oct-4 and Nanog pluripotent markers.
    Store at -80°C in aliquots. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing.
  • Neural Progenitor Cell Dopaminergic Differentiation Kit (ATCC® ACS-3004)

    ATCC® Number: ACS-3004

    Applications:

    The media is specially designed for the dopaminergic differentiation of iPSC-derived neural progenitor cells (NPCs).
