StemXVivo Serum-Free Dendritic Cell Base Media Summary
Pre-optimized base media for successful dendritic cell culture.
Pre-optimized media for dendritic cell culture
High lot-to-lot consistency decreases variation
Can be supplemented with user-defined cytokines and growth factors
Why Use Pre-optimized Reagents for the Production of Dendritic Cells from Monocytes and Subsequent Dendritic Cell Culture?
The efficiency of differentiation of common myeloid progenitors into dendritic cells can vary from one experiment to another depending on the media components, the supplements used to drive differentiation, and the quality of the starting cell population.
Inefficient differentiation represents a costly and time-consuming obstacle that can be minimized through the use of high quality media and differentiation supplements. StemXVivo® Serum-Free Dendritic Cell Base Media is a defined media optimized for dendritic cell culture. The addition of Recombinant Human GM-CSF (Catalog # 215-GM) and Recombinant Human IL-4 (Catalog # 204-IL) generates a defined medium that efficiently drives differentiation of CD14+ monocytes into monocyte-derived dendritic cells (MoDCs).

Stability and Storage
Upon receipt, the Human StemXVivo® Serum-Free Dendritic Cell Base Media should be stored at <-20 °C in a manual defrost freezer. The media can be thawed at 2 °C to 8 °C or at room temperature. Thawed media can be aliquoted and stored at <-20 °C in a manual defrost freezer for up to 3 months or used within a month when stored in the dark at 2 °C to 8 °C. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
The human origin-derived components used in this product have been derived from human plasma, which has been tested and found negative for antibodies to HIV-1/2, hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg), and hepatitis C virus (HCV). However, the medium should be handled as if potentially infectious. Safe laboratory procedures should be followed and protective clothing should be worn when handling this media. The acute and chronic effects of over-exposure to this media are unknown.
FOR LABORATORY RESEARCH USE ONLY. NOT FOR USE IN DIAGNOSTIC PROCEDURES.
The safety and efficacy of this product in diagnostic or other clinical uses has not been established.
This reagent should not be used beyond the expiration date indicated on the label.
Results may vary due to variations between dendritic cell precursors/progenitor cells derived from different donors.
The definitive hematopoietic system is made up of all adult blood cell types including megakaryocytes, erythrocytes, and cells of the myeloid and lymphoid lineages. All of these cells are derived from multipotent hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) through a succession of precursors with progressively limited potential. Hematopoietic stem cells are tissue-specific stem cells that exhibit remarkable self-renewal capacity and are responsible for the life-long maintenance of the hematopoietic system. HSCs are rare cells that reside in adult bone marrow where hematopoiesis is continuously taking place. They can also be found in cord blood, fetal liver, adult spleen, and peripheral blood. R&D Systems offers several products for studying hematopoietic lineage cells including serum-free media, lineage depletion antibodies and kits, and reagents for performing colony forming cell (CFC) assays.
StemXVivo Serum-Free Dendritic Cell Base Media Scientific Data Examples
Differentiation of CD14+ Monocytes into Dendritic Cells.
LPS-matured monocyte-derived dendritic cells were obtained after CD14+-enriched monocytes were cultured for nine days in StemXVivo Serum-Free Dendritic Cell Base Media (Catalog # CCM003) supplemented with GM-CSF (Catalog # 215-GM) and IL-4 (Catalog # 204-IL).
Phenotypic Analysis of Cultured Monocyte-derived Dendritic Cells Before and After LPS-induced Maturation.
Immature monocyte-derived dendritic cells (MoDCs) (open histograms; green line) were obtained after CD14+-enriched monocytes were cultured for seven days in StemXVivo Serum-Free Dendritic Cell Base Media (Catalog # CCM003) supplemented with 50 ng/mL Recombinant Human GM-CSF (Catalog # 215-GM) and 35 ng/mL Recombinant Human IL-4 (Catalog # 204-IL). Mature monocyte-derived dendritic cells (filled histograms) were cultured under the same conditions for seven days and then induced with LPS for an additional 48 hours. Day seven immature MoDCs and day nine LPS-treated MoDCs were stained with a FITC-conjugated Mouse Anti-Human B7-1/CD80 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # FAB140F), a FITC-conjugated Mouse Anti-Human CD83 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # FAB1774F), a FITC-conjugated Mouse Anti-Human B7-2/CD86 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # FAB141F), an Anti-MHC Class II Antibody, or an appropriate isotype control antibody (empty histogram with solid line).
Mature Monocyte-derived Dendritic Cells Induce Proliferation of Allogenic T Cells.
CD14+monocytes were cultured for seven days in Human StemXVivo Serum-free Dendritic Cell Base Media (Catalog # CCM003) supplemented with Recombinant Human GM-CSF (Catalog # 215-GM), Recombinant Human IL-4 (Catalog # 204-IL) and Gentamycin. The cells were subsequently treated with LPS for an additional 48 hours to induce dendritic Cell Differentiation/Maturation. Graded doses of mature monocyte-derived dendritic cells were incubated with 1 x 105autologous or allogenic CD3+T cells for five days.3H-thymidine (3H-TdR) was added to the culture for the final 18 hours and T cell proliferation was measured using a scintillation counter. Results are presented as the mean cpm obtained from three experiments.
