      DescriptionPluriSTEM™ Human ES/iPS Cell Medium
      OverviewPluriSTEM™ has been extensively tested and proven to possess the following characteristics for Human ES/iPS cell culture:

      • Supports the culture of pluripotent human ES/iPS cells for greater than 30 passages.
      • Eliminates the requirement to feed cells over the weekend. Take the weekend off.
      • Eliminates the requirement of daily feeding (i.e. Monday, Wednesday, Friday media exchanges).
      • Simple and easy transition of cells to PluriSTEM™ from feeder-based and feeder-free culture systems.
      • Enables superior single cell culture, passage and selection of human pluripotent clones.
      • Superior freeze-thaw cell viability and recovery.
      • Supports suspension culture.

      Background InformationEMD Millipore has developed a complete, defined and serum-free medium formulation for the feeder-free culture of human ES and iPS cells. PluriSTEM™ Human ES/iPS Cell (Cat. No. SCM130) is a small molecule based medium that enables weekend-free culture of human pluripotent stem cells and allows for media exchanges every other day without compromising the morphology or long term functionality of pluripotent stem cells. Pluripotent cells maintained in this moderate feeding regiment exhibited high cell health with minimal spontaneous differentiation,; expressed high levels of pluripotency markers (NANOG, OCT3/4, SOX-2, SSEA-3, SSEA-4, TRA-1-60, and TRA-1-81), retained differentiation potential and possessed a normal karyotype. PluriSTEM™ Human ES/iPS Medium is provided as a stand-alone 500 mL bottle that is ready-to-use and does not require additional supplementation. Cells proliferate faster in PluriSTEM™ as compared to the same cells plated in other serum-free and feeder-free media systems; a typical 4-6 day passage is expected for most pluripotent cell lines.
