ProST HPSC is a specialized serum-free medium for the cultivation and expansion of human hematopoietic stem cells (HPSC) and cells of myeloid lineage in suspension culture. Hematopoietic stem cells are CD34+, which are the earliest hematopoietic stem cells identifiable in bone marrow, peripheral blood and neonatal cord blood. By adding one or more differentiation factors or changing culturing conditions, HPSC can be induced to differentiate into different types of hematopoietic lineage cells.
ProST HPSC basal medium, ProST HPSC growth supplement and ProST HPSC cytokine supplement are guaranteed stable for 12 months when properly stored. ProST HPSC complete medium (basal + supplements) is stable for 3 months when stored in the dark at 2-8° C. We do not recommend using the complete medium beyond 3 months.
