Features and Benefits

  • Human-derived product rich in growth factors and proteins that maximize cell growth
  • Pooled from multiple donors
  • Manufactured to reduce lot-to-lot variation
  • Extensive serology testing ensures safety for each lot
  • Improves proliferation of MSC compared to FBS without loss of phenotype
  • Enhances genetic stability in stem cell cultures


  • Extensive pre-testing of batches
  • Increases cell growth kinetics and reduces cell doubling time
  • Enhances stem cell proliferation and reduces supplementation
  • Maintenance of cell phenotype and differentiation potential

Population doubling

Graphic Population doubling FBS PLSolution

Cumulative population doubling of bone marrow-derived MSC was higher in PLSOLUTION compared to FBS.

Proliferation rate

Graphic Proliferation rate PLMatrix PLSolution FBS

Proliferation of human bone marrow-derived MSC increased in a concentration-dependent manner with PLMATRIX, PLSOLUTION an FBS, respectively.

Differentiation potential

Graphic Differentation potential FBS PLSolution PLMatrix

Osteogenic and adipogenic differentiation potential of human bone marrow-derived MSC in FBS, PLSOLUTION and PLMATRIX.

Recommended for

  • Human Mesenchymal Stromal Cells from Bone Marrow (hMSC-BM)
  • Human Mesenchymal Stromal Cells from Umbilical Cord (hMSC-UC)
  • Human Mesenchymal Stromal Cells from Adipose Tissue (hMSC-AT)
  • Human Dermal Fibroblasts (HDF)

Safety Matters

  • Standard testing of donors for infectious diseases
  • Sterilized by 0.1 µm filtration (mycoplasma-free)
  • Final product testing for microbial and endotoxin contamination
  • Quality control testing carried out in a certified test laboratory

Note: Despite all testing, proper safety precautions for potentially infectious agents must be taken. All human blood products should be handled in accordance with currently acceptable biosafety practices and guidelines for the prevention of blood borne viral infections.
