  • Recommended culture vessel coating: Not required
  • Recommended cell culture medium: Axol MSC Expansion Medium for Umbilical Cord-
  • Derived MSCs
  • Recommended seeding density: 5,000-10,000 viable cells/cm2
  • Recommended centrifugation speed: 200 x g for 5 min

Always count the number of viable cells after thawing

Thawing & Plating:

  • Thaw the cells quickly in a 37°C water bath until just prior to complete thawing
  • Wipe the outside of the vial with 70% ethanol
  • Gently resuspend the cells and take an aliquot to perform a cell count.
  • Slowly dilute the cells into the required volume of pre-warmed MSC Expansion Medium (must be at least 10 mL so that the concentration of DMSO is less than 1%).
  • Rinse the cryovial with 1 mL of MSC Expansion Medium to ensure all of the cells are transferred.
  • Seed cells into the culture vessel at the recommended seeding density
  • Once the cells have attached (after 6-24 h), replace the culture medium with fresh pre-warmed MSC Expansion Medium
  • Frequency of media changes: Every 2-3 days



  • Passage when the culture reaches: 80% confluent
  • Recommended passaging reagent: Trypsin-EDTA
  • After adding passaging reagent, incubate the cells for 5 minutes at 37°C. 2bserve the cells at regular intervals for detachment from the culture vessel.
  • 2nce the cells have detached, neutralize the trypsin with pre-warmed, 37°C SkeletaMuscle CelCulture Medium.
  • Centrifuge the cells at 400 x g for 5 minutes.
  • Remove the supernatant and resuspend the celpellet in 1-2 m of  pre-warmed SkeletaMuscle CelCulture
  • Medium freshly supplemented with 10 ng/mRecombinant Human FGF2.
  • Perform a celcount to determine the number of viable cells.
  • Dilute the cells into the required volume of pre-warmed SkeletaMuscle CelCulture Medium freshly supplemented with 10 ng/mRecombinant Human FGF2.
  • Seed cells into the Collagen coated culture vesseat the recommended seeding density of 10,000 viable cells/cm2.
  • Incubate the cells at 37°C, 5% CO2 in a humidified incubator

It is recommended that the Mesenchymal Stem Cells are used for endpoint assays prior to passage 6 for optimal performance in your experiments
