Data and Publications
Figure 1. Recovery of Neural Progenitor Cells Cryopreserved in STEMdiff™ Neural Progenitor Freezing Medium
NPCs cryopreserved in STEMdiff™ Neural Progenitor Freezing Medium (NPFM) show reproducibly high recovery after thawing. Recovery is comparable to cryopreservation in serum-containing medium (90% FBS / 10% DMSO). n = 3 independent experiments. Percent recovery defined as percentage of cells frozen that remain viable after thaw.
Figure 2. Neural Progenitor Cells Cryopreserved in STEMdiff™ Neural Progenitor Freezing Medium Retain Neural Progenitor Cell Properties
NPCs previously frozen in STEMdiff™ Neural Progenitor Freezing Medium display healthy morphology (A, one day after thaw), express NPC marker SOX1 (B, red) and can be differentiated into MAP2+ (C, red) and class III β-tubulin+ (C, green) neurons.
