General description

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are adult stem cells, which have the capacity for multi-lineage differentiation, giving rise to a variety of mesenchymal phenotypes such as osteoblasts (bone), adipocytes (fat), and chondrocytes (cartilage). Obesity related diseases pose significant health challenges to many industrialized nations. Many metabolic disorders associated with cardiovascular diseases, such as diabetes and atherosclerosis, are directly linked to the increased production and size of adipose cells.
AdipoMAX Differentiation Media is a ready-to-use mesenchymal stem cell adipogenesis differentiation media. AdipoMAX produces cells with elevated levels of lipids, analyzed by Oil-Red-O staining, after 3 weeks of differentiation compared to other adipogenesis differentiation media. AdipoMAX is an excellent research tool to study adipocyte differentiation, adipogenesis and adipocyte related metabolic diseases.

Other Notes

AdipoMAX Differentiation Medium consists of a 100 mL basal medium component and a 10 mL dilution factor component, both of which can be stored at -20°C until ready to use.

Before use, thaw both materials and combine the dilution factor into the basal medium. The complete medium can be stored at 2-8°C for up to 3 weeks.
