Overview

STEMdiff™ Endothelial Expansion Medium Kit (Catalog #08007) includes the xeno-free endothelial expansion basal medium and supplement, and must be used in conjunction with Animal Component-Free Cell Attachment Substrate. STEMdiff™ Endothelial Expansion Medium is optimized for the expansion of hPSC-derived endothelial cells and for the maintenance of endothelial marker expression. For passaging, Animal Component-Free Cell Dissociation Kit (Catalog #05426) is required.

NOTE: Heparin Solution (Catalog #07980) is required for preparation of complete STEMdiff™ Endothelial Expansion Medium.

Figure 1. Schematic Workflow of Endothelial Induction Using the STEMdiff™ Endothelial Kit

In Phase 1, human embryonic stem (ES) or induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells are cultured in a TeSR™ maintenance medium (mTeSR™ Plus, mTeSR™1, or TeSR™-E8™). On Day 1 (Phase 2) of the protocol, cells are ready for induction into early mesoderm progenitor cells by replacing TeSR™ medium with STEMdiff™ Mesodermal Induction Medium (MIM). By Day 3 (Phase 3), STEMdiff™ Mesoderm Induction Medium is replaced with STEMdiff™ Endothelial Induction Medium to derive endothelial cells. On Day 7, cells are passaged 5 - 6 times onto cultureware pre-coated with Animal Component-Free Cell Attachment Substrate in STEMdiff™ Endothelial Expansion Medium (Phase 4).

Figure 2. Endothelial Cells Expand Faster in STEMdiff™ Endothelial Expansion Medium Compared to Serum-Containing Medium

STEMdiff™ Endothelial Expansion Medium (A) sustains expansion rate in later passages and leads to (B) superior expansion of hPSC (C1 cell line)-derived endothelial cells when compared to serum-containing medium.
