Merck:/Freestyle/BI-Bioscience/Cell-Culture/stem-cell-images/rodent-neural-stem-cell-expansion-media.jpg
The mouse neural stem cell expansion medium and rat neural stem cell expansion medium are provided as two-component systems that are convenient and easy to use. These expansion kits include the neural stem cell basal medium and the necessary supplements to provide for the growth and proliferation of mouse or rat neural stem cells.

Neural Stem Cell

Expansion Media
Both rat and mouse neural stem cell lines are provided with optimized serum-free cell expansion media and necessary growth factors. These media have been extensively validated to support both rat and mouse neural stem cell expansion at accelerated rates in culture.
Differentiation Media
Multipotent neural stem cells possess the ability to differentiate into various types of neurons, astrocytes or oligodendrocytes based on the specific environmental cues exerted upon the cells. Merck offers optimized media to differentiate both rat and mouse neural stem cell lines into neurons and astrocytes.

Neural Media Supplements

N21 Medium Supplement
An improved version of the widely used B27 media supplement. Optimized serum-free supplement developed for the isolation and expansion of neurons from mouse and rat hippocampus, mouse ES cells and human ES cell derived neural progenitor cells.
NDiff™ Neuro-2 Medium Supplement
NDiff™ Neuro-2 Medium Supplement is a serum-free, N2-like supplement for the in vitro differentiation of both human and murine embryonic stem (ES) cells into post-mitotic neurons along for the derivation, propagation and maintenance of mouse and human neural stem cells.
NDiff™ Neuro-27 Medium Supplement
NDiff™ Neuro-27 Medium Supplement is a serum-free supplement containing antioxidants and other factors that has been specifically developed for the in vitro propagation and maintenance of undifferentiated murine embryonic stem (ES) cells in serum free medium. Formulation is similar to the widely used B27 media supplement.

Mesenchymal Stem Cells

Expansion Media
Merck offers a variety of mesenchymal stem cell expansion media to fit your research needs. From validated serum containing media to serum-free and xeno-free media options, expand your mesenchymal stem cells reliably.
Differentiation Media
Mesenchymal stem cells are defined as a self-renewing population of adherent multipotent progenitor cells with the capacity to differentiate into several mesenchymal cell lineages. Mesenchymal stem cells have been derived from various adult tissues including bone marrow, adipose, dental pulp and umbilical cord. In defined in vitro assays, mesenchymal stem cells have been shown to readily differentiate into lineage-specific cells that form bone, cartilage, fat, tendon, and muscle tissues.

Merck offers various rodent and human specific mesenchymal stem cell differentiation media, kits and growth factors for osteogenesis and adipogenesis induction.
