Recombinant Proteins

Directed differentiation of pluripotent stem cells into a variety of specialized tissue types is stimulated by the addition of recombinant proteins to cell culture media. Our GMP-grade StemFit Purotein® options are ideal for the development of differentiated cell types for ATMPs. StemFit Puroteins® are also highly compatible with our StemFit® medium!

StemFit Purotein® Recombinant Proteins

StemFit Purotein® Activin A and bFGF recombinant proteins are manufactured to GMP guidelines and have been approved by the PMDA* in Japan for ATMP manufacture.

bFGF is a growth factor used in the expansion of iPS/ES cells, and both bFGF and Activin A are used to direct the differentiation of iPS/ES cells towards cells of the liver, pancreas, or kidney.


  • Animal-origin free.
  • High purity and performance.
  • Highly compatible with StemFit® Basic 03 cell culture media.
  • Reliable lot-to-lot consistency.

Cryopreservation Media

High-viability and streamlined cryopreservation of stem cells for storage and shipping is crucial for the successful commercialization of ATMPs. AMSBIO offers a wide range of GMP-grade cryopreservation solutions suitable for pre-clinical and clinical applications.


A chemically-defined, animal-free stem cell cryopreservation solution manufactured in compliance with JPN, EU, US, and PIC/S GMP guidelines.


  • Clinically relevant - contains only European or US Pharmacopoeia graded ingredients.
  • Optimized for storage of ES/iPSCs and other fragile cell types, it is an optimal choice for storage of cells developed for cell therapy applications.
  • Drug Master File registered with the FDA, for a streamlined clinical translation.


GMP-grade STEM-CELLBANKER® is also available in a DMSO-free formulation, for clinical applications where DMSO is an unsuitable freezing agent.

GMP-grade STEM-CELLBANKER has also been validated by high profile laboratories for cryopreservation and recovery of whole organoids, with high viability rates. Find out more here.


Expanding the possibilities of cell therapy, STEM-CELLBANKER® EX is a GMP-compliant, chemically defined, sterile,  & xeno-free cryopreservation media you can rely on for safe & easy storage of your ATMP. 

  • Composed of ingredients that are already approved in the manufacture of cell therapy excipients for intravenous injection.
  • Optimized for applications in regenerative medicine: no requirement for washing of the cryopreservation solution upon delivery of the cell therapy product.
  • Drug Master File registered with the FDA - CBER.


HSC-BANKER® is a GMP-compliant cryopreservation solution optimised for hematopoietic stem cells. Its simple formulation offers the potential to be used as an excipient in cell therapy applications.

A study by the Cord Blood Bank of the Japanese Red Cross Society found that HSC-BANKER can effectively replace conventional 8% DMSO and DEXTRAN-containing media for cryoprotection of HSCs. View results here.
