The PromoCell Dendritic Cell (DC) Generation Medium has been developed for the easy and efficient generation of immature as well as fully mature myeloid Dendritic Cells from peripheral blood monocytes. The DC Base Medium is a user-customizable versions of the DC Generation Media that does not include cytokines.
PromoCell DC Generation Medium allows for the generation of DC from cryopreserved as well as freshly isolated cells. In the latter case, the Monocyte Attachment Medium is also needed.
PromoCell DC Media consist of a bottle of Basal Medium and one vial of SupplementMix. Adding the SupplementMix to the Basal Medium results in the complete Medium. Indeed, all DC Media must be supplemented with additional cytokines. The cytokines are included with the DC Generation Media but not with the DC Base Media.
