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). Articular hyaline cartilage has poor regenerative capacity, and the loss of its function is, in the long term, often painful and debilitating. Therefore, attempts have been made to study chondrogenesis or to replace damaged cartilage tissue with MSC derived stem cells.
ChondroMAX Differentiation Medium is a ready-to-use xeno-free mesenchymal stem cell chondrogenesis differentiation media. ChrondroMAX produces cells with elevated levels of sulfated proteoglycans, analyzed by Alcian-Blue staining, after 3 weeks of MSC pellet differentiation compared to other chrondrogenesis differentiation media. ChondroMAX is an excellent research tool to study chondrocyte differentiation, chondrogenesis and wound healing.
