The Cancer Stem Cell Media Culture System

        Proliferation and tumorsphere formation efficiency (TFE) of MCF-7 cells during serial passage in 3D tumorsphere
        culture using the PromoCell Cancer Stem Cell Medium.
        Robust proliferation was maintained during the culture, which was discontinued after passage 10 with no sign of
        growth rate inhibition. Serial passage in the Cancer Stem Cell Medium resulted in significant increase of TFE from
        2% in P1 to 14% in P4, and 28% in P9, respectively.
