ATCC (American Type Culture Collection), the world’s largest and most diverse bioresource center, now offers a complete solution to successfully grow normal human primary adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells — invaluable tools used for research studies that include stem cell differentiation, tissue engineering, cell therapy, regenerative medicine and the creation of induced pluripotent stem cells.
Each lot of ATCC® Normal Human Primary Adipose-Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells is cryopreserved in the second passage to ensure the highest viability and plating efficiency, and thoroughly tested for sample purity. They are performance tested together with media, growth supplements and reagents to guarantee reliability as part of ATCC® Primary Cell Solutions™, a system of matched components designed to maximize growth, maximize functionality, and maintain normal morphology for specific cell types.
The complete cell-specific ATCC Primary Cell Solutions growth system (consisting of the Mesenchymal Stem Cell Basal Medium and Growth Kit) creates the ideal cell system culture environment for propagation in low serum (2%) conditions and subsequent differentiation. Using the complete ATCC Primary Cell Solutions system, researchers will be able to produce stem cell cultures with functional expression of relevant biomarkers; superior growth and proliferation; normal morphology; and multipotent, lineage-specific differentiation. The system provides everything a researcher needs to successfully grow the highest quality cultures reliably and consistently — with expert support if needed.
