Culture of human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells) and human embryonic stem cells (ES cells) requires careful technique and rigorously quality-controlled culture environments to ensure retention of pluripotency, stability and survival of these cells.
mTeSR™1 and TeSR™2
are standardized and scalable systems for the feeder-free culture and expansion of iPS cells and ES cells for a variety of applications including basic and cell therapy development research, screening and banking. mTeSR™1 is the most widely published feeder-free culture medium in the world
and supports the culture and derivation of ES cells and iPS cells.
, based on the published E8 forumulation from the developers of mTeSR™1, is a medium for feeder-free and xeno-free culture of human pluripotent stem cells. It can be used with Corning® Matrigel® hESC-qualified matrix, or, for a completely xeno-free system, Vitronectin XF™
