Selective isolation and rapid expansion of primary epidermal melanocytes
|Content||500 ml, Frozen medium|
CnT-40 is specifically designed for selective isolation and rapid expansion of primary epidermal melanocytes. It can be upgraded for clinical applications.
CnT-40 is designed for high-efficiency isolation and expansion of primary melanocytes. It contains progenitor cell-targeted (PCT) factors to help retain a proliferative phenotype, plus a range of melanocyte-specific factors (including endothelin-1 and endothelin-3) and 1% serum. It does not contain antibiotics / antimycotics and is free of PMA and TPA.
Melanocytes growing in CnT-40 medium display primarily a proliferative bipolar phenotype. The cells retain melanin expression.
We also offer complementary media specifically tailored for melanocyte differentiation (CnT-PR-MD) and whitening studies (CnT-PR-MH). Please see the Melanocyte Page for an overview.
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 email@example.com for further details and pricing.
