Innovative Solutions for cGMP-grade Human Mesenchymal Stem Cell Culture

About this Webinar:

Human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) are currently the subject of many clinical trials world-wide, as researchers develop new treatments for a variety of regenerative and inflammatory diseases. The use of a completely defined, serum-free, xeno-free culture system for hMSCs is necessary to provide control over research variables and reduce the inconsistency inherent in serum-containing culture systems.

David Fiorentini will provide an overview of the novel NutriStem® MSC xeno-free, serum-free culture system, which efficiently supports initial isolation and optimal expansion of hMSCs from a variety of sources, while maintaining appropriate hMSC features, such as proper fibroblast-like cell morphology, phenotypic surface marker expression profiles, differentiation capacity, self-renewal potential, and genetic stability over time. In addition, he will also describe the MSCgo™ family of xeno-free, serum-free differentiation media for use in generating mature adipocytes, osteoblasts, and chondrocytes using hMSCs isolated from a variety of sources.

Who Should Attend?

  • Any researcher culturing hMSCs isolated from bone marrow, adipose tissue, cord blood, Wharton’s Jelly, placental tissue, or other source
  • Researchers interested in improving cell culture results and minimizing lot-to-lot variation between experiments
  • Researchers interested in learning new techniques for isolation, culture, cryopreservation, and/or differentiation of hMSCs
  • Researchers interested in working with xeno-free and/or clinical grade hMSC culture conditions
