HiSepTM – Lymphocyte Separation Media

HiSepTM Lymphocyte Separation Media

PBMCs – Peripheral Blood mononuclear cells – are a mixture of many subsets of lymphocytes and monocytes. The isolation of PBMCs is fundamental for immunology research.

HiSep™ Lymphocyte Separation Media are sterile, ready to use, density gradient media for isolating viable mononuclear cells from human blood and other animal species. They are made up of a polymer of sucrose with high synthetic molecular weight. Mononuclear cells (lymphocytes and monocytes) and platelets are contained in the banded plasma-LSM interphase due to their density and the pellet that is formed contains mostly erythrocytes and granulocytes, which have migrated through the gradient to the bottom of the tube.

  • Highest consistency of different lots of LS001 with respect to purity of isolated PBMC’s
  • Very low Endotoxin level <0.3 EU/ml
  • Manufactured in GMP, ISO 13485 and ISO 9001 certified facility
  • CE Marked for IVD(98/79/EC)
  • Performance Test 95 ± 5% mononuclear cells
  • 5 ± 2% red blood cells
  • 3 ± 2% granulocytes
  • >90% viability of separated cells
Code Product Name Density (g/ml) Cell type separated
LS001 HiSep™ LSM 1077 1.077 Human mononuclear cells (Lymphocytes and monocytes)
LS002 HiSep™ LSM 1073 1.073 Lower density human mononuclear cells (eg- mesenchymal stromal cells or monocytes).
LS003 HiSep™ LSM 1084 1.084 Mononuclear cells of higher density from Chicken, Rats, Mice and other Mammals)
LS004 GranuloSep™ GSM1119 1.119 Human mononuclear cells and granulocytes
LS005 Ficoll 400-20% Commonly used to prepare density gradients
LS006 HiSep™ LSM 1077 with 10mM HEPES 1.077 Human mononuclear cells (Lymphocytes and monocytes)

Purity and viability are two major criteria for the performance of Separation media. Hence, both are controlled very strictly for each batch including use of Flow Cytometry and CASY counting and volume-based size detection.

CryoXLTM – Cryopreservation


Cryopreservation is a central process in all cell culture laboratories. The right cryopreservation tools guarantee best recovery, viability and vitality after thawing. Below you will find a complete solution.

Cryopreservation Bottles

CryoXLTM Media enable highest viability of various kind of cell types. Solutions include:

  • Cell Freezing Media – DMSO
  • Cell Freezing Media – Glycerol
  • Chemically Defined Serum Free Freezing Medium
  • Stem Cell Freezing Medium
  • Hybridoma Cell Freezing Medium

CryoXL Overview

  • Regular and Sensitive Cell Lines

CryoXL™ Cell Freezing Medium provides increased viability after thawing. These media contain either DMSO or Glycerol as a cryoprotective agent. TCL093 contains higher percentage of serum and has been optimized for freezing of sensitive cell lines such as insect cell lines, HEK293 and primary fibroblasts.

  • Animal Origin Free and Serum-Free Formulation:

Developed to reduce regulatory hassles

Specially designed for cryopreservation of mammalian cells cultured in serum free conditions. Animal origin free formulation reduces the risk of contamination with adventitious agents.

Animal Origin Free and Serum-Free Graph

Performance of CryoXL™ Serum Free Freezing Medium was evaluated using different serum free cultures and compared with commercially available serum free freezing media. Post-thaw recovery of cells cryopreserved in CryoXL™ Serum Free Freezing Medium was found to be at par with other commercially available media.

  • Stem Cells – Improved post-thaw Recovery

Optimized to maintain differentiation potential

Cryopreservation of stem cells is quite difficult compared to standard cell types. These cells exhibit higher rates of apoptosis and spontaneous differentiation after freezing and thawing. With CryoXL™ medium for stem cells more than 85% of the original cell population can be successfully recovered without affecting their functional properties such ad differentiation potential and surface marker expression.

Stem Cells Graph

Performance of CryoXL™ Stem Cell Freezing Medium was evaluated using Human Wharton’s Jelly -(HWJ-MSC), Human Amnion Derived- (HAD-MSC) Mesenchymal Stem Cells, Human Dental Pulp-Stem Cells (HDP-SC) and compared with the traditional cryopreservation medium. CryoXL™ Stem Cell Freezing Medium exhibits higher post thaw recovery compared to the traditional medium.
