CellGenix® rh EGF

GMP and Preclinical grade

CellGenix Recombinant Human EGF reliably promotes the expansion of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). It in addition promotes the differentiation of embryonic stem cells (ESCs) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs)-derived hepatoblasts. CellGenix rh EGF is produced in our dedicated animal-free facility ensuring maximum safety for optimal use in ATMP manufacturing.

General Information

Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) is a growth factor that promotes cell growth, proliferation and differentiation. It is found in a variety of human body fluids.

EGF is used in the cell and gene therapy space for the expansion of bone marrow and adipose tissue derived MSCs, and the generation of stem cell derived hepatocytes.

GMP Grade

CellGenix GMP Recombinant Human EGF is produced following all applicable GMP guidelines and allows for the safe use in accordance with USP Chapter <1043> and Ph. Eur. General Chapter 5.2.12.

Our GMP cytokines are provided with documented evidence of purity, potency, consistency and stability. In combination with our expert regulatory and technical support this will help simplify your raw material qualification and validation efforts.

Handling Instructions

Reconstitution

Recommended in 0.2% acetic acid to a final concentration of 250 µg/ml for 50 µg vials or 500 µg/ml for 1 mg vials.

Shipment

Ambient temperature. Please refer to Technote to learn more about our shipment validation procedure.

Expiry

≥ 6 months from date of shipping. Please refer to Certificate of Analysis (CoA) for the exact expiry date.

Storage & Stability

Store lyophilized cytokine at -20°C to -80°C.

Store a 250 µg/ml cytokine solution

• 4 weeks at 2°C to 8°C under sterile conditions after reconstitution. Store in the original container. 

• 4 months at -20°C to -80°C under sterile conditions after reconstitution. Store in 60 µl aliquots in polypropylene cryogenic vials.

Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.

Data

CellGenix GMP rh EGF has an activity of 0.5 – 2.0 × 106 IU/mg

The activity of GMP rh EGF was measured in a cell proliferation assay using an EGF-dependent cell line , Balb/3T3. It was calibrated against NIBSC #91/530.

You can find the batch specific activity on the certificate of analysis (CoA).
