General description

ENStem-A Neural Expansion Medium is a defined serum-free formulation that has been optimized for the culture and expansion of ENStem-A Human Neural Progenitor Cells. When used in conjunction with L-Glutamine (not provided) and FGF-2 (provided), the expansion medium will allow for the maintenance and proliferation of ENStem-ATM Human Neural Progenitor Cells.

Application

Cell culture protocols for use with ENStem-A Human Neural Progenitor Cells are available in the datasheet that accompanies the ENStem-A Human Neural Progenitor Expansion Kit (Cat. No. SCR055).

Components

ENStem-A Neural Expansion Medium, 500 mL (Part No. SCM004a)

FGF-2, 50ug, lyophilized (Part No. GF003)

Quality

Each lot of medium is tested for the optimal cell growth and proliferation of ENStem-ATM Human Neural Progenitor Cells.
Sterility Testing: Negative

Physical form

ENStem-ATM Neural Expansion Medium contains neurobasal medium, B27 supplement, and LIF.

Storage and Stability

ENStem-ATM Neural Expansion Medium should be stored at -20°C until ready to use. Upon thawing, fresh L-Glutamine (not provided) should be added for a final concentration of 2 mM to the expansion medium. Thawed should be stored at 2-8°C and given a 1-month expiration dating. Dispense into aliquots to avoid repeated heating prior to each use.

FGF-2 (10 μg, lyophilized) should be reconstituted with 100 μL 5 mM Tris-HCL, pH 7.6 for a final concentration of 100 μg/mL. Dispense into aliquots to avoid repeated freeze-thaw. Store at -20°C.
