Human Mesenchymal Stem Cell Media

PromoCell offers a complete Mesenchymal Stem Cell Media System including growth media, differentiation media and human mesenchymal stem cells (MSC).

The PromoCell MSC Growth Media are designed to robustly support the standardized expansion of multipotent human Mesenchymal Stem Cells. Rigorous quality control tests ensure reliable and consistent product quality.

Key Features

  • Guaranteed Growth Performance
    All of our MSC are guaranteed to grow with a doubling time of <30h for a minimum of 10 population doublings.

  • Differentiation Tested
    Each MSC lot is tested for differentiation into osteoblasts, adipocytes and chondrocytes in accordance with ISCT* guidelines.

  • ISCT* Marker Panel
    Each MSC lot is tested for CD73+/CD90+/CD105+ and CD14-/CD19-/CD34-/CD45-/HLA-DR-.

  • Higher Result Comparability
    Our newly designed MSC Growth Medium 2 with low-serum content (2% FCS) ensures low batch-to-batch variation.

  • Defined & Xeno-Free
    DXF Medium available for defined and xeno-free MSC culture.

MSC Self-renewal and Characterization


Fig. 1: Growth performance of hMSCs isolated from bone marrow (hMSC-BM) on fibronectin coated tissue culture plastic. A, The MSCs were cultured with PromoCell Growth Medium DXF, which has a defined and xeno-free formular (MSC-GM DXF). B, the cumulative numbers of doublings and doubling times are shown here over the curse of 7 passages. A stable growth rate of less than 30 h/doubling can be observed even after prolonged in vitro culture for 32 population doublings over the course of 7 passages. (Click to enlarge the picture)


Media Portfolio

A new human Mesenchymal Stem Growth Medium is available now to better meet your requirements for more standardized MSC cultures. The MSC Growth Medium 2 has a significantly reduced serum content.
The Mesenchymal Stem Cell Growth Medium DXF (Defined Xeno Free) allows for the robust proliferation of multipotent MSC in a defined and xeno-free culture environment. Fibronectin-coated plates are necessary in conjunction with this medium.

PromoCell offers five MSC Differentiation Media to efficiently induce differentiation of MSC into adipogenic, chondrogenic (w/ and w/o inducers), osteogenic or neurogenic lineages, respectively.
