General description

Preadipocyte Growth Medium Kit


Preadipocyte Growth Medium is a low-serum (5% V/V) medium developed for the undifferentiated expansion of human preadipocytes. The media are optimized for primary human cells, but can also be used for murine preadipocytes.Recommended for:Human White Preadipocytes (HWP)


Part of a Cell Culture System offered in a variety of formats:Growth Medium (Ready-to-use): Includes Basal Medium and SupplementMixGrowth Medium Kit: Includes Basal Medium and SupplementPackSupplementMix: Contains all media supplements premixed in one vialSupplementPack: Contains all media supplements as individual vials


All lots of PromoCell Preadipocyte/Adipocyte Media are subjected to comprehensive quality control tests using primary human white preadipocytes. Each lot is checked for growth promoting activity, adherence rate, and typical morphology of the tested preadipocytes. In addition, the Preadipocyte Differentiation Medium/Adipocyte Nutrition Medium are tested for the capacity to induce the terminal differentiation of preadipocytes into mature adipocytes. 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).

Preparation Note

Final supplement concentrations after addition to the basal medium:Fetal Calf Serum: 0.05 ml / mlEndothelial Cell Growth Supplement: 0.004 ml / mlEpidermal Growth Factor (recombinant human): 10 ng / mlHydrocortisone: 1 µg / mlHeparin: 90 µg / ml

Storage and Stability

Store the Basal Medium at 4 to 8°C in the dark and the SupplementMix or SupplementPack at -20°C immediately after arrival. Do not freeze the Basal Medium. If stored properly, the products are stable until the expiry date stated on the label. After adding the supplements to the Basal Medium, the shelf life of the complete medium is 6 weeks at 4 to 8°C. 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
