TeSR™-AOF: Animal Origin-Free hPSC Maintenance Medium
Animal Origin-Free Maintenance Medium
Prepare for a seamless transition to the clinic with TeSR™-AOF, the new animal origin-free (AOF) human pluripotent stem cell (hPSC) maintenance medium. Since it contains no animal-derived raw materials, TeSR™-AOF helps minimize risk in your cell therapy development—no matter what stage your research is at. Compared to low-protein formulations, TeSR™-AOF consistently supports cell growth across cell lines and allows for restricted feeding schedules, enabling you to get more of the cells you need while minimizing the time spent maintaining them.

Frequently Asked Questions
What does animal origin-free mean and why is it important?
TeSR™-AOF is animal origin-free with traceability to the secondary level of manufacturing, which means that is not manufactured using any raw material ingredients derived from an animal (including human) tissue, cell, or body fluid and that the components used to manufacture the raw materials are also not derived from an animal tissue, cell, or body fluid. This is important because it means that TeSR™-AOF is viral safe by design, easing the path to clinical applications with straightforward traceability documentation that can be provided to regulators.
