General description

M2-Macrophage Generation Medium DXF

Application

Macrophage Generation Media have been developed for the efficient generation of monocyte-derived macrophages (MDM) from freshly isolated peripheral blood monocytes or directly from PBMC as a starting material. In the latter case, the Monocyte Attachment Medium (C-28051) is also needed.The M2-Macrophage Generation Medium DXF contains M-CSF and allows for the generation of M2-polarized macrophages. This xeno-free medium is ready-to-use and includes cytokines for the directed differentiation of M2-like polarized MDM.Recommended for:Human Mononuclear Cells (hMNC), freshly isolatedHuman Monocytes (hMo), freshly isolated

Components

Basal Medium M2 (250ml)SupplementMix M2 (for 250ml)CytokineMix M2: M-CSF (for 250ml)

Quality

All lots of PromoCell Macrophage Media DXF are subjected to comprehensive quality control tests using human peripheral blood mononuclear cells. Each lot of PromoCell Macrophage Media DXF is tested for the ability to support Macrophage differentiation verified by morphological evaluation and flow cytometry analysis. Each lot of PromoCell Monocyte Attachment Medium is tested for its ability to support optimal attachment and viability of peripheral blood Monocytes. Approved in-house lots of media are used as a reference. In addition, all lots of media have been tested for the absence of microbial contaminants (fungi, bacteria, mycoplasma).

Storage and Stability

Store the Basal Medium at 4 to 8°C in the dark, store the SupplementMix at -20°C immediately after arrival. Keep the Cytokine Mix at -20°C for long-term storage or at 4 to 8°C for up to 2 weeks. Do not freeze the Basal Medium. If stored properly, the products are stable until the expiry date stated on the label. After adding the SupplementMix to the Basal Medium, the shelf life of the complete medium is 6 weeks at 4 to 8°C. Complete Medium supplemented with cytokines should be used within 2 weeks. Do not freeze the complete medium. For use, pre-warm only an aliquot of the complete medium and keep the remaining medium refrigerated at 4 to 8°C.
