Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) October 14, 2009
STEMCELL Technologies Inc. (STEMCELL) is pleased to announce the release of TeSR™2, a defined, animal-protein free maintenance medium for human embryonic and induced pluripotent stem cells. This medium takes a step towards addressing the needs of researchers working towards the culture of their cells in a medium free of animal-derived proteins.
"We anticipate that TeSR™2 will be a very useful tool to researchers working with hESCs and hiPSCs," says Dr. Clive Glover, Senior Product Manager at STEMCELL Technologies. "The release of this medium demonstrates STEMCELL Technologies ' commitment to providing high quality, standardized research reagents to the pluripotent stem cell research community."
This medium complements STEMCELL's range of products for hESC and hiPSC research. These include mTeSR®1, the most widely used, feeder-independent maintenance medium for hESC and hiPSC, and AggreWell™, a unique tool to prepare size-controlled, uniform embryoid bodies when differentiating these cells.
