NutriStem® D5 Performance Data

High Viability of hMSCs from Various Sources

hMSCs derived from a variety of sources were frozen in NutriFreez® D5 Solution and thawed after one week.

High Proliferation and Normal Morphology of hMSCs

hMSCs derived from varied sources were frozen in NutriFreez® D5 Solution. Representative images (X100) taken 3 days post seeding show the proliferation results. Numbers represent viable cell counts.

Maintenance of hMSC Classical Marker Profile

hMSCs maintain classical profile of MSC markers with low percentage of hematopoietic contamination after being frozen in NutriFreez® D5 Salt-Based Cryopreservation Solution

Maintenance of hMSC Multipotency

AT-MSCs cells were cryopreserved in NutriFreez® D5 Salt Based Solution, thawed at P2 and, for passage P3/P4, seeded and grown in adipogenic, osteogenic and chondrogenic MSCgo™ Differentiation Media.
