Scientific resources

CnT-30 is a chemically defined medium for differentiation of human iPSC and ESC epithelial lineages.

A variety of differentiation protocols have been used succesfully with this product.
One example of differentiation into corneal epithelium followed by proteomic comparison of iPSC-derived vs primary limbal cells was published in Nature Scientific Reports (Mikhailova et al. 2015).

Other recent papers describing corneal differentiation of hPSCs:

Sorkio et al. 2018, Hongisto et al. 2018.
The medium undergoes a range of QC tests in our lab before being released for sale. Please see the datasheet for details. It can easily be upgraded for clinical applications. Contact us at support@cellntec.com for further details and pricing.
Thawing, seeding, and passaging protocols are particularly important for optimal cell growth. Please visit our Protocols Page for our recommendations.
