When we are thirsty, nothing is better to me than an ice-cold glass of H20. Some people reach for something sweet, some like the carbonation, but us, we love the refreshing feel of ice-cold water. To each their own, right? Like all living things, cells need nourishment, and cell culture media is the vessel to this nourishment when cells are grown outside the body in a culture dish. Typically, media are water-based liquids that carry basic nutrients cells need to survive: salts, sugars, amino acids, proteins, etc. However, just as the water industry exploded with its various flavors of water, vitamin water, energy water, the cell culture media industry has exploded with so many different types and flavors—and that’s just for the basic cell culture media.

In response to requests from our colleagues, we have released a trial size (1 mL) of
StemBeads FGF2. Many stem cell scientists who engage in stem cell culture have asked us to provide a smaller size of the StemBeads FGF2. This smaller size allows for a laboratory to test out the product at minimal cost.
StemBeads FGF2 is a revolutionary growth factor supplement that offers a more efficient way to grow FGF2 dependent stem cell cultures. Already verified in some of the top stem cell labs in the United States, this supplement delivers a steady release of growth factor into your media of choice creating a more stable environment. This allows scientists to reduce the number of times they feed their cells from daily, to every 3rd day.
The Benefits of StemBeads FGF2
With regards to stem cell growth, StemBeads FGF2 provides the following benefits:
- Reduction of Media Changes by (Saves you time)
- Significant Savings on Media Costs (Saves you money)
- Better Quality Cultures by Reduction of Spontaneous Differentiation (Facilitates better cells)
- Use of Your Favorite Media, No Change of Culture Conditions
Please note that 8 uls of StemBeads FGF2 are needed per 1 ml of growth media.
The science behind StemBeads FGF2 has been published in PLOS ONE. Feel free to contact us should you have additional questions with regard to the science behind StemBeads FGF2, or any other questions about our products. It is our goal to make your research as a stem cell scientist easier, more enjoyable, and extremely successful.

The science behind StemBeads FGF2, the novel product that provides researchers with a more efficient way to grow better stem cells is now published in the recent issue of PLOS ONE. The study performed by a team of researchers at The Neural Stem Cell Institute led by myself highlights the instability of soluble FGF2 in cell culture, and how stabilization of FGF2 for an extended period of time greatly improves the quality of stem cell cultures.
