    Serum free medium for Human Fibroblast

    Product Basics

    HFDM®-1 is a chemically defined medium for culturing human normal dermal fibroblast. (HNDF). Fibroblast cultured with this medium under serum free condition can proliferate as well as DMEM supplemented with 10% serum. For expansion of fibroblast cells less serum (0.5 – 2.0%) is required compared to conventional methods.

    Key Features

    * * CSTI Artificial Serum can be used instead of serum and obtain similar results while maintaining a serum free cell culture system **
