Eppendorf CCCadvanced® FN1 motifs cultureware – Ready-to-use, xeno-free and synthetic

Cultivating iPSCs, MSCs, primary cells or other ECM-dependent cells? Tired of lot-to-lot coating media variation/validation, tedious preparation and increased contamination risk? How about a defined synthetic, xeno-free surface for stable long-term expansion of your stem cells?

Eppendorf CCCadvanced® FN1 motifs cultureware is ready-to-use. It can be also used under restrictive culture conditions (serum- and xeno-free media). Find out how it can improve your stem cell culture below…

See detailed expansion analysis on hiPSCs and hMSCs or a list of tested cells, media and reagents in the Download section.

  • ready-to-use
  • xeno-free and synthetic surface
  • for restrictive culture conditions
  • shelf life of 36 months at room temperature
  • GMP-compliant

Ready-to-use cultureware for hiPSCs and hMSCs

Eppendorf CCCadvanced® FN1 motifs cultureware is ready-to-use ECM-mimetic cultureware for human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs). It is also suitable for other cell types and culture conditions and provides a fully defined synthetic fibronectin-derived motifs coating. This supports a predictable expansion and differentiation of hiPSCs and hMSCs (see detailed expansion analysis in the Download section below). 

hiPSCs: Efficient long-term expansion of hiPSCs in a completely synthetic culture system

  • Supports efficient long-term hiPSC expansion in a completely defined, animal- and human-component-free culture system for 25 passages
  • Consistent and robust growth rate
  • Typical morphology remains stable (Fig. 1A)
  • hiPSCs remain undifferentiated and maintain functional pluripotency
  • Maintenance of trilineage differentiation potential after long-term expansion (Fig. 1B) while exhibiting normal genomic integrity

Advantages vs. self-coating

Self-coating of cell culture consumables comes with several disadvantages that can be circumvented by using ready-to-use, synthetic surfaces. The fully defined surface supports a predictable expansion and differentiation of various (stem) cell types by synthetic fibronectin-derived motifs. 

  • Significantly lower experimental variability by defined surface
  • No expensive lot-specific performance verification of coating media necessary
  • No time-consuming, tedious preparation and vessel number planning needed
  • No increased contamination risk by cultureware preparation and storage
  • No vessel or coating media dissipation

Further advantages

Reproducible results with synthetic surface coating

Eppendorf CCCadvanced® FN1 motifs cultureware is coated with synthetic fibronectin-derived motifs (optimized steric configuration to mimic ECM proteins) with high lot-to-lot production consistency. There is no need for expensive and time-consuming lot-specific performance verification of coating media.
