Mesenchymal Stem Cell Basal Medium for Adipose, Umbilical and Bone Marrow-derived MSCs

PCS-500-030

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 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.

Handling information

Handling procedure
  1. Obtain one Mesenchymal Stem Cell Growth Kit for Adipose and Umbilical-derived MSCs –Low serum from the freezer; make sure that the caps of all components are tight.
  2. Thaw the components of the growth kit just prior to adding them to the basal medium.
  3. Obtain one bottle of Mesenchymal Stem Cell Basal Medium for Adipose, Umbilical and Bone Marrow-derived MSCs (485 mL) from cold storage.
  4. Decontaminate the external surfaces of all growth kit component vials and the basal medium bottle by spraying them with 70% ethanol.
  5. Using aseptic technique and working in a laminar flow hood or biosafety cabinet, transfer the indicated volume of each growth kit component, as indicated in Table 1, to the bottle of basal medium using a separate sterile pipette for each transfer.
