Gibco StemFlex Medium is a new pluripotent stem cell (PSC) medium that tests better than standard media on metrics important to novel stem cell applications. The medium achieves up to twofold-faster stem cell recovery following gene editing, and as much as fivefold improvement in clonal expansion following single-cell passaging in the absence of a ROCK inhibitor. It consistently maintains pluripotency with weekend-free feeding schedules, and can also be used for multiple matrices and passing reagents. With these gains in performance and flexibility, the medium enables progress in areas at the forefront of PSC research, including genome editing, single-cell analysis, and reprogramming.
