CnT-PR-MSC-XF medium provides faster expansion of bone marrow-derived MSC than widely used alternatives such as ╬▒MEM + 10% FCS.

The new CnT-Prime MSC-XF medium enables high efficiency isolation and expansion of both adipose and bone marrow derived MSCs, without plate coating, in a fully xeno-free environment that can be upgraded for clinical use!

Cells growing in CnT-Prime MSC-XF medium also demonstrate extended longevity and remain strongly multipotent for at least 4 passages.

Cells can be induced to differentiate down adipogenic, osetogenic or chondrogenic lineages following addition of the corresponding differentiation supplement.

Adipose-derived MSC expanded in CnT-PR-MSC-XF are CD45-/CD31-/CD73+/CD90+/CD105+/CD34+/-, and importantly at least 8% of the cell population remains CD34-positive at passage 4.

AD-MSC expanded in CnT-Prime MSC-XF medium also maintain strong multipotency for extended periods, with class leading differentiation efficiency after 4 passages in culture.
