      DescriptionPLTGold® Human Platelet Lysate
      Background InformationPLTGold® Human Platelet Lysate is a Xeno-Free cell culture supplement that is a superior alternative to fetal bovine serum (FBS) for use in human mesenchymal stem cell cultures. PLTGold is an unfractionated product derived from human platelets that does not require the addition of heparin. It remains clot-free with performance equivalent to the original PLTMax® platelet lysate. Optimal growth of MSCs can be achieved with 5% PLTGold. PLTGold been used to effectively to grow mesenchymal stem cells derived from other species including mouse, rabbit and porcine.

      PLTGold Human Platelet Lysate is derived from normal human donor platelets collected at U.S. blood centers. Multiple donors units are pooled in large batch sizes and manufactured to produce a consistent product. Human Platelet Lysate is for research use only (RUO) and not intended for human or animal diagnostic or therapeutic use.
      Product Information
      ApplicationHeparin-free Human Platelet Lysate (hPL) for Mesenchymal Stem Cell Culture. 500ml.
      Key Applications
      • Cell Culture
      • Stem Cell Culture
      Application NotesInstructions for Use

      1.Cell seeding should be performed following the general guidelines for the specific cell type. For Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs), cells are typically plated at approximately 2x10^3 – 5x10^3 cells per cm2.
      2. For MSCs, PLTGold can be used at 5% vol/vol in a typical cell culture medium such as DMEM (Sigma D5671) or α-MEM (Sigma M8042). If the basic media doesn’t contain Glutamine, a source of L-Glutamine (Sigma G7513) will need to be added to the media at a final concentration of 2mM. For other types of cells, the concentration of PLTGold will need to be titrated according to the application (a titration from 2% vol/vol to 10% vol/vol is recommended to establish the percentage of PLTGold needed for the cell type to use).
      3. Do not allow primary MSC confluence to exceed 70-80%.
