General description

Cell freezing medium is a combination of cryoprotectant DMSO with fetal bovine serum. However serum free medium replaces serum with methylcellulose and poloxamer 188 and other additives like ascorbic acid, α-tocopherol and proline.

Application

Cell Freezing Medium-DMSO Serum free 1x has been used in the freezing of human neural progenitor cells (hNPCs), olfactory ensheathing cells (OECs) and retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cells.

Other Notes

Complete ready-to-use medium containing Minimum Essential Medium, dimethyl sulfoxide (8.7%) and methyl cellulose. Prepared according to the formulation of Waymouth.
