Product Overview

MSCgo™ Adipogenic Differentiation Medium is a serum-free and xeno-free formulation developed for optimal differentiation of human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSC) to mature adipocytes. The MSCgo™ Adipogenic Differentiation Medium is validated to efficiently differentiate hMSC from a variety of sources, including bone marrow (BM-MSC), adipose tissue (AT-MSC), umbilical cord tissue (UC-MSC), and Wharton’s jelly (WJ-MSC). The MSCgo™ Adipogenic Differentiation Medium kit includes a basal medium and two supplement mixes, containing all growth factors and supplements necessary for a complete adipoogenic differentiation medium.  No additional supplements are required.

The MSCgo™ Adipogenic Differentiation protocol is part of a complete system for multipotency evaluation of hMSCs.  This kit enables reliable differentiation of hMSCs to mature adipocytes without background differentiation or interruption in cellular metabolism.

Adipogenesis Results

Adipogenic differentiation of hMSC results in the formation of spherical cells accumulated with lipid droplets that can be detected using an inverted microscope. The amount of differentiated cells can be vary using different hMSC (e.g. source, age, and passage number). 

After expansion in culture using MSC NitriStem XF Medium, hMSCs from adipose tissue (hMSC-AT), bone marrow (hMSC-BM), and cord tissue (hMSC-CT) were transfered to a differentiation assay in MSCgo™ Adipogenic Differentiation Medium. Images were taken after 16 days of adipogenesis and Oil Red-O staining (20x).

Instructions for Use

Complete Medium Preparation

  1. Thaw MSCgo™ Adipogenic Supplement Mix I (05-331-1-01) and MSCgo™ Adipogenic Supplement Mix II (05-331-1-15) at room temperature.
  2. Add 100 µl of Supplement Mix I and 1.5 mL of Supplement Mix II to 100 mL of in the MSCgo™ Adipogenic Basal Medium (05-330-1B).
  3. Store the complete medium at 2 to 8°C for up to 30 days.

Note:  The combination of both MSCgo Adipogenic Supplement Mix I and II into the Basal Medium generates a complete medium that is ready for use.  No additional supplements are required.
