Mouse Embryonic stem cells (ESCs) were isolated from mouse (Strain C57BL⁄6) embryos at Day E3.5. Before cryopreservation, the cells were tested for viability (>70% post-thaw viability), their ability to remain undifferentiated when cultured on mouse feeder cells as assayed by marker expression (Oct4, SSEA-1, Nanog) and their ability to differentiate into embryoid bodies and express markers indicative of three germ layers (Ectoderm: (+) for β3-tubulin and nestin, Mesoderm: (+) for smooth muscle actin, Endoderm: (+) for AFP). Cells were cryopreserved at passage 20 (P20). For optimal growth perfo...

GIBCO® Astrocyte Medium has been specially formulated to support the growth of primary human and rat astrocytes while retaining their phenotypes. The medium has been internally validated and optimized to provide an optimal balance between cell growth and the maintenance of cell viability, normal phenotype, and function. If more rapid proliferation is desired, addition of an appropriate amount of epidermal growth factor (EGF) is recommended, although cells may exhibit morphological and phenotypic changes. Astrocytes are a type of glial cells of the nervous system with a typical star shape. It h...

Knockout™ Serum Replacement (Knockout™ SR) is a defined, serum-free formulation used to support the growth of undifferentiated ES (Embryonic Stem Cells) and iPS (Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells) in culture. It directly replaces FBS in existing protocols. One of the most important parameters surrounding ES cell culture is the maintenance of ES cells in an undifferentiated state. Until now, FBS was the only option for nutritive supplementation of ES and iPS cell media. Unfortunately, FBS also contains factors which can promote differentiation of ES cells. Thus, each lot must be screened prior to ...
