Controlling the behavior of your stem cells to ensure stemness or to efficiently stimulate differentiation along a particular lineage can be challenging. Clontech offers a range of media and supplements for the derivation, maintenance, and expansion of embryonic stem (ES), induced pluripotent stem (iPS), embryonic germ (EG), and neural stem (NS) cells. Additionally, we offer products for the differentiation of ES and NS cells into neurons and mesenchymal stem (MS) cells into osteoblasts. Use the tables below to select the right media and supplements for your cell type and use.
These serum-free products are ideal for ES, EG, and iPS cell culture.
