Cellartis DEF-CS 500 Xeno-Free 3D Spheroid Culture Medium
Traditional 2D culture systems simply cannot support the scale-up required (>109 cells/treatment) to sustain the growing demand for cell-based therapies. 3D suspension culture is a viable, cost-effective solution for large-scale production of pluripotent cells. Although stem cells have traditionally been difficult to adapt to suspension culture, our scientists have developed a culture system that allows robust, stable growth and maintenance of pluripotency under defined, feeder-free, and xeno-free conditions. The Cellartis DEF-CS 500 Xeno-Free 3D Spheroid Culture Medium paired with a perfusion bioreactor system provides an ideal method for creating large amounts of high-quality, undifferentiated starting material. The formulation of this medium is based on the 2D medium, Cellartis DEF-CS 500 Xeno-Free Culture Medium, and cells growing in 2D can easily be transitioned to 3D for robust scale-up.
