The lab’s principal investigator was experiencing variability in cell proliferation and differentiation when culturing mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), which led to re-work and testing, hindering the lab’s ability to reproduce results. Upon further investigation the variability was attributed to culture conditions and inconsistencies with the media and supplements used to culture the MSCs.
The Lab required a cell culture media that could deliver consistent performance with MSCs.
GeminiBio collaborated with the lab to review and test CellCor Chemically Defined MSC Media, which is a cGMP manufactured serum-free media that requires no additional supplements to aid cell proliferation. Upon testing and use of CellCor, the lab experienced improved cell proliferation and a significant decrease in variability. They also noted superior stemness, supporting tri-lineage differentiation and performance.
Also, since CellCor CD MSC Media is manufactured under cGMP, the lab is positioned to seamlessly transition their research from the lab to the clinic if required.
