CellGenix® rh SCF
GMP and Preclinical grade
CellGenix Recombinant Human SCF reliably supports survival and differentiation of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) and progenitor cells as well as the differentiation of cord blood-derived CD34+ cells into natural killer cells (NK cells). It is also used to differentiate embryonic stem cells (ESCs) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) into megakaryocytes and T cells. CellGenix rh SCF is produced in our dedicated animal-free GMP facility ensuring maximum safety for optimal use in ATMP manufacturing.
Stem Cell Factor (SCF) is a cytokine that is produced by fibroblasts and endothelial cells. It plays an important role in hematopoiesis, spermatogenesis and melanogenesis.
SCF is used in the cell and gene therapy space for the expansion of HSCs that are used for transplantation.
CellGenix GMP Recombinant Human SCF is produced following all applicable GMP guidelines and allows for the safe use in accordance with USP Chapter <1043>, Ph. Eur. General Chapter 5.2.12 and ISO Technical Standard 20399.
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.

Storage & Stability
Store lyophilized cytokine at -20°C to -80°C.
Store a 250 µg/ml reconstituted 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.
CellGenix GMP rh SCF has an activity of 0.5 – 2 × 106 IU/mg
The activity of GMP rh SCF was measured in a cell proliferation assay using the SCF-dependent cell line TF-1. It was calibrated against the NIBSC #91/682.
You can find the batch specific activity on the certificate of analysis (CoA).
