MEF Feeder Cells

Research Theme : ES/iPS cells



 ・Mouse Embryonic Fibroblast feeder cells derived from mouse embryo.
 ・A feeder cell line applicable for culture of mouse, primate, human ES/iPS cells.
 ・Validated high quality with every lot.
 ・Mitomycin C-treated cells ready for use.

Storage conditions: liquid nitrogen

This product is very thermosensitive. Upon delivery please move the cell vials into liquid nitrogen to ensure optimal cell attachment levels.


MEF (Mouse Embryonic Fibroblasts) feeder cells are applicable for a wide range of ES/iPS cell culture. ReproCELL offers exceptionally consistent quality thanks to rigorous validation testing. See protocol (below) for more information.
