Product Description

Optimized for Culturing Human Fibroblasts and Mesenchymal Stem Cells-Pre-Adipocytes in a Low-Serum Environment:  FibroLife® S2 supports the growth of these cells in a 2% serum environment at rates equal to or greater than comparable media supplemented with 2% to 10% FBS.

FibroLife® Basal Medium contains no antimicrobials and no phenol red. Antimicrobials and phenol red are not required for eukaryotic cell proliferation, but are available from Lifeline® .

FibroLife® S2 provides an ideal cell system to establish low-serum human feeder layers for stem cell culture or as a model to study wound healing, toxicology or basic cell biology.

Kit format for formulation flexibility:  Offered in a kit format comprised of FibroLife® Basal Medium in a light-protected 500 mL bottle, and FibroLife® S2 LifeFactors® Kit with associated supplements and growth factors packaged in a convenient gas-impermeable pouch. This kit allows you to prepare fresh medium in your laboratory, extending shelf life and enhancing performance.

Human Fibroblast Low Serum Culture Medium

ISO-Style Quality Testing for Reproducible Results

FibroLife® S2 medium is tested for:

  • Sterility: Negative for bacteria and fungal growth
  • pH: 7.4 +/- 0.2
  • Cell Performance:  Rate of proliferation and morphology
  • Osmolality:  270 +/- 10 mOsm
  • Endotoxin:  < 0.5 EU/mL

fibroblasts on fibrolife S2 sheetFibroLife® S2 medium grows fibroblasts and pre-adipocytes in low-serum conditions at rates that meet or exceed other commercially available serum-containing media while maintaining excellent cell morphology. In comparisons with other commercially-available media, FibroLife® S2 medium shows superior proliferation at different seeding densities.

Shown below: Human Dermal Fibroblasts-Neonatal inoculated at low seeding densities in 24-well plates. Higher fluorescence represents a greater number of cells per well, and therefore, better proliferation.
