Product Information

PLTMax® Human Platelet Lysate is a growth factor-rich supplement that is a superior alternative to fetal bovine serum (FBS) for cell culture, including human mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) culture. PLTMax® has a proven track record of clinical use. It has been used to grow cells that have been used in hundreds of patients around the world. PLTMax® is used as a manufacturing component in the generation of adult stems cells in clinical trials in North America, Europe, South America, Middle East, Asia and Australia (Phase I to Phase III) in indications including neurology, nephrology, gastrointestinal disease, wound repair and cardiology.

  • Manufactured to reduce lot-to-lot variation
  • Reduced supplementation (PLTMax® is used at half the concentration of FBS)
  • Contains more than 100 growth factors and proteins
  • Enhances genetic stability in stem cell cultures
  • Used in more than 30 clinical trials worldwide

PLTMax® Human Platelet Lysate is derived from normal human donor platelets collected at U.S. blood centers. Multiple donors units are pooled in large batch sizes and manufactured to produce a consistent product.

Addition of an anti-coagulant, such as heparin, is required to inhibit coagulation in media supplemented with PLTMax®.  Add heparin to a final concentration of 2 U/mL when preparing complete medium.
