STEMCELL Technologies Introduces a New Animal Component-Free, Serum-Free Medium for Culturing Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells
Date:4/28/2009

STEMCELL Technologies, Inc. today announced the release of MesenCult®-ACF Medium, the first defined, animal component-free (ACF) and serum-free medium for culturing human mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs).

Vancouver, B.C. (PRWEB) April 28, 2009 -- STEMCELL Technologies, Inc. today announced the release of MesenCult®-ACF Medium, the first defined, animal component-free (ACF) and serum-free medium for culturing human mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs).

MesenCult®-ACF Medium supports long-term growth of MSCs with retention of multi-lineage differentiation potential. In addition, MSCs cultured in MesenCult®-ACF Medium expand faster and show a significant reduction in hematopoietic cell contamination at early passages compared to serum-containing media.

"MesenCult®-ACF Medium is a very important addition to our product portfolio and indicates our strong interest in remaining at the cutting edge of scientific and preclinical work in the stem cell arena," says Dr. Allen Eaves, President and CEO of STEMCELL Technologies.

There is considerable interest in using mesenchymal stem cells as therapeutic agents for the treatment of a wide variety of diseases. Because of this clinical interest, there is a need to culture the cells in animal component-free culture systems, in order to minimize the risk associated with disease transmission and immune rejection of transplanted cells. The availability of MesenCult®-ACF Medium will greatly facilitate advances in efforts to assess the therapeutic relevance of mesenchymal stem cells.

Furthermore, the removal of undefined components within the medium reduces the variability traditionally associated with culture of these cells and allows for more consistent research and development work on this very important cell type.
