- Problematic adherence
- Cell differentiation
- Contamination from animal-origin components such as FBS, BSA, Plasma Albumin and plate coating material
InVitria has designed cell culture media supplements specifically to address these issues.
When I was working on a serum free media project the Cellastim product was a ‘breakthrough’ discovery. Your recombinant albumin (Cellastim) was able to induce Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) to attach without any serum.
