iPS Cell colony after culture in Primate ES Medium

Human iPSCs cultured using Primate ES Cell Medium with 5 ng/mL bFGF on MEF cells.


REPROCELL’s Primate ES Cell Medium is a serum-free formulation for feeder-dependent ES (embryonic stem) / iPS (induced pluripotent stem) cell culture that was jointly developed by REPROCELL and Kyoto University. This stem cell media enabled development of the world’s first human induced pluripotent stem cells in 2007 by Prof Shinya Yamanaka and his colleagues. Following this breakthrough, REPROCELL’s Primate ES Cell Culture Medium has been successfully adopted for culture of stem cells by numerous labs throughout the world to promote a wide range of stem cell applications. This stem cell media has been specifically developed to simplify the process of ES and iPS cell culture for human and other primate cells. You just need to add bFGF prior to use* and the medium is ready for use.

* Not necessary for all the cell lines.
