X-VIVO

X-VIVO Serum-free Hematopoietic Cell Media provide nutritionally complete and balanced environments for a variety of cells including lymphokine activated killer (LAK) cells, peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBL), and tumor infiltrating lymphocytes (TIL).These media do not contain any exogenous growth factors, artificial stimulators of cellular proliferation, or undefined supplements. They are devoid of any protein kinase C stimulators and are suitable for the investigation of second messenger systems in the activation of human and murine lymphocytes.

The formulations are complete and contain pharmaceutical grade human albumin, recombinant human insulin, and human or recombinant transferrin.

There are three versions of this media:

  • X-VIVO 10  - designed to support the generation of LAK cells in a serum-free environment.
  • X-VIVO 15 - similar in composition to X-VIVO 10 but optimized for the proliferation of tumor infiltrating lymphocytes (TIL) under serum-free conditions. It also supports the proliferation of purified CD3+ cells isolated from peripheral blood and human tumors, and can be used to support the growth of human monocytes, macrophage cells and cell lines, PBL, granulocytes, and natural killer (NK) cells as well as the expansion of HUT-78 and related human lymphocytic cell lines.
  • X-VIVO 20 - optimized to support the generation of lymphokine activated killer (LAK) cells from monocyte depleted peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBL) at high density and has also been used as a growth medium for PBL and tumor infiltrating lymphocytes (TIL).

Storage = 2ºC to 8ºC
