HemEX™ For the expansion of mouse hematopoietic stem cells.
HemEx® - Type9A is a basal medium specifically designed for the expansion of mouse hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) isolated from bone marrow. Contaminants derived from albumin can trigger the differentiation of HSCs. By substituting albumin with polyvinyl alcohol (PVA), HemEx® - Type9A can maintain HSCs in an undifferentiated state for over one month during expansion culture.
- Serum-free formulation.
- Can maintain HSCs in an undifferentiated state for over one month of expansion culture.
- Verified proliferation of mouse HSCs and hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells (HSPCs).
- Developed under the supervision of Prof. Hiromitsu Nakauchi (Stanford University) and Prof. Satoshi Yamazaki (Tokyo University), based on the Wilkinson et al. 2019 publication.
