StemLife MSC-BM Medium is a new medium optimized for the culture of Human Bone Marrow Mesenchymal Stem Cells. StemLife MSC-BM supports the undifferentiated expansion of Bone Marrow Stem Cells.
StemLife MSC-BM Basal Medium contains no antimicrobials and no phenol red. Lifeline® offers these supplements, but they are not required for eukaryotic cell proliferation.
- Kit format for formulation flexibility: StemLife MSC-BM culture medium is offered in a kit format composed of basal medium and associated supplements and growth factors called “LifeFactors®.” This kit allows you to prepare fresh medium in your laboratory, extending shelf life and enhancing performance.
- Protective packaging: StemLife MSC Basal Medium is provided in a light-protected 500 mL bottle. The remaining LifeFactors® are packaged in a convenient gas-impermeable pouch for easy storage.
