Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSC), also termed Mesenchymal Stromal Cells, are self-renewing multipotent cells that can differentiate into a wide variety of cell types. MSC have been shown to differentiate in vitro into adipocytes, chondrocytes, osteoblasts, myocytes, and ?-pancreatic islets cells. They can also transdifferentiate into neuronal cells and hepatocytes.
Creative Bioarray offers a range of Mesenchymal Stem Cells produced at Creative Bioarray's cell culture facility from normal human tissues of different origins. Differentiation of MSC into adipocytes,osteoblasts, chondrocytes, and neuronal lineages can be performed using Creative Bioarray Mesenchymal Stem Cell Differentiation Media system (see Instruction Manual "Mesenchymal Stem Cell Media").
Shortly after isolation, all Mesenchymal Stem Cells are cryopreserved using Creative Bioarray's proprietary, serum-free freezing medium, Cryo-SFM. Thawing and seeding results in passage 2. Each cryo vial contains more than 500,000 viable cells after thawing.
Proliferating cell cultures are made from 500,000 cryopreserved cells that have been thawed and cultured for three days at Creative Bioarray.
