Animal-free cryopreservation media optimized for iPS and ES cells

STEM-CELLBANKER® is a ready-to-use, chemically defined, animal-free freezing medium manufactured under GMP conditions. It is optimized for embryonic stem (ES) and induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cell storage, as well as being a suitable solution for the cryopreservation of other fragile cell types. Containing only European or US Pharmacopoeia graded ingredients, STEM-CELLBANKER® is the optimal choice for storage of cells developed for cell therapy applications. It is also available as a DMSO free formulation.

Cell Viability

Results of cryopreservation analysis performed at the Karolinska Institute on hESC and iPS cells with STEM-CELLBANKER® show 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).
