Optimized Stem Cell Cryopreservation Media
STEM-CELLBANKER® is a chemically defined, animal-free freezing medium - optimized for ES cell and iPS cell storage as well as other valuable cell types.
- Chemically defined and animal product free
- Consistent high cell viability & proliferation
- Maintains pluripotency post thaw
- Enables long term cell storage >10 years at -80oC or -196oC
- No programmed freezer or liquid nitrogen required
- Long shelf life
STEM-CELLBANKER® is completely free of serum and animal derived components and contains only European or US Pharmacopoeia graded ingredients making is suitable for storage of cells developed for cell therapy applications. STEM-CELLBANKER® is
ready-to-use and requires no special devices, such as a controlled rate freezer, in order to achieve consistently high viabilities following resuscitation from cryopreservation, even
over extended long-term storage.
STEM-CELLBANKER® significantly increases cell viability while maintaining cell pluripotency, normal karyotype and proliferation ability after freeze-thaw.
Results of cryopreservation analysis performed at the Karolinska Institute on hESC and iPS cells with STEM-CELLBANKER® shows significantly higher cell viability
over conventional freezing medium while retaining cell pluripotency, normal karyotype and proliferation ability in HS293, HS306 and ChiPSA cell lines
(Holm et al., Hum. Reprod. 2010).
solutions are simple to use. Achieve the highest
cell viability while maintaining stem cell pluripotency, normal karyotype and proliferation ability after cryopreservation using
