PAN-Biotech Panexin CD is a chemically defined, xeno-free serum replacement for the cultivation of adherent and non-adherent cells under serum-free culture conditions or to significantly reduce the amount of serum in cell culture. It supports the growth of many cell types in an optimum manner without any extra handling compared to serum.
Panexin CD is free of any animal or human-derived components. It contains recombinant proteins, lipids, salts, amino acids, trace elements, hormones and a 3-dimensional substrate release system in an optimized formulation. It contains no growth factors, undefined hydrolysates or peptones.
Panexin CD is designed to replace or to reduce serum in the cell culture in a very simple manner. Compared to other serum replacements, it contains only chemically defined components. Due to its very defined character, lot testing is not necessary anymore. It also allows high reproducibility and simplified downstream processing. Panexin CD contains no growth factors and enables defined proliferation and differentiation of stem cells. Characterization studies of growth factors will obtain more reproducible and clearer results. Panexin CD is also useful to develop sensitive cell-based in vitro tests and coculture procedures. For cell lines which require specific growth factors these should be added in a concentration as previously used.
Panexin CD is suitable for the cultivation of a variety of adherent and suspension cells under serum-free culture conditions or to reduce the necessary FBS amount in cell culture (see Fig.1). For instructions on cell adaptation from FBS, please refer to the Product Datasheet (PDS) and Application Note.
