MEF Feeder Cells

We offer multiple lines including: CF-1DR4Neo-resistant and SNL (STO) feeder cells. All MEF cells are very high quality and are manufactured in the US under ISO:9001 QMS. We offer both untreated cells for further expansion and treated cells that can be directly used as a feeder layer.

MEF Cells Categories
 

CF-1 MEF Feeder Cells

Derived from CF-1 mouse embryos; and used as feeder cells to support ESC and iPSC cultures.

CF-1 MEF Feeder Cells

DR4 MEF Feeder Cells

Derived from DR4 mouse embryos and are resistant to Neomycin, Hygromycin, Puromycin and 6-thioguanine.

DR4 MEF Feeder Cells

Neo-resistant MEF Feeder Cells

Neo-resistant MEF Feeders are isolated from mouse embryos that are genetically engineered to contain neomycin-resistance genes.

Neo-resistant MEF Feeder Cells

SNL 76/7 (STO Line)

The SNL 76/7 cell line is derived from a mouse fibroblast STO cell line transformed with neomycin resistance and murine LIF genes.
