Procedure Overview

Cryopreservation of Stem Cells

Thaw CryoDefend® Stem Cells Media.

Thaw CryoDefend Stem Cells Media.

Detach the cells from the cell culture dish.

Detach the cells from the cell culture dish.

Transfer the cells to a 15 mL conical tube.

Centrifuge at 200 x g for 5 minutes.

Remove and discard the supernatant.

Resuspend the cells in CryoDefend® Stem Cells Media at 0.5-1.0 x 106 cells/mL.

Transfer the cells to a 15 mL conical tube.

Transfer the cells to a cryovial.

Freeze the cryovial at -80 °C overnight.

Transfer the frozen cryovial to liquid nitrogen for storage.

Transfer the cells to a cryovial.
 

Thawing of Cryopreserved Stem Cells

Warm appropriate cell culture media to 37 °C.

Warm appropriate cell culture media to 37  C.

Add pre-warmed culture media to the cryovial containing cryopreserved cells.

Pipette up and down and as cells thaw, transfer the thawed cells to a 15 mL conical tube containing pre-warmed expansion media.

Add pre-warmed culture media to the cryovial containing cryopreserved cells.

Centrifuge at 200 x g for 5 minutes.

Resuspend the cells in pre-warmed expansion media.

Plate the stem cells at the desired density.

Centrifuge at 200 x g for 5 minutes.
