The CCCadvanced™ FN 1 motifs cell culture plates and flasks are a new range of cultureware that feature a novel, synthetic, ready-to-use surface for use with human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs), human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs), and other ECM-dependent cells. This surface is made up of fibronectin-derived motifs to support cell attachment by mimicking native ECM proteins. Furthermore, it allows expansion of stem cells in xeno-free and restrictive culture conditions, aiming to provide a completely defined culture system for PSCs without animal or human components. This surface supports consistent and robust growth rate of hiPSCs with all pluripotent-specific characteristics over at least 20 passages.
