Growth kinetics and CFU-F efficacy. A-F) Representative morphology pictures of WJ derived MSCs cultured in DMEM KO + 10% FBS and MesenCult XF,SF media; G,H,I) Total cell yield obtained at passage 5 using XF,SF medium, compared against DMEM KO + 10% FBS; K) Average number of colonies generated per 100 cells at passage 3 and passage 4, by cells cultured in XF,SF media and DMEM KO + 10% FBS; J,L) Individual colonies captured at 4X magnification, for XF,SFM cultures and DMEM KO + 10% FBS cultures, respectively. FBS, fetal bovine serum; GFU-F, colony-forming unit-fibroblast; MSCs, mesenchymal stem cells; WJ, Wharton’s jelly.
