is a highly defined, feeder-free culture medium for human embryonic stem cells (ES cells) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells)
. It is based on the E8 formulation developed by the laboratory of Dr. James Thomson (University of Wisconsin- Madison), the lead research group behind the design of mTeSR™1
, the most widely-published feeder-free culture medium for pluripotent stem cells.
, TeSR™-E8™ medium is made with the highest level of quality and care. It contains only the essential components required for culturing ES cells and iPS cells, providing a simpler medium for the culture of pluripotent stem cells. TeSR™-E8™ can be used with a surface coating of either BD Matrigel™ hESC-qualified Matrix or defined, xeno-free Vitronectin XF™
