Bio-Techne scientists presented a poster at AAI 2017 demonstrating the effects that cell culture conditions can have on the phenotypic characterization of human M1 and M2a macrophages. This poster compared the expression of fifty macrophage cell surface markers, leading to the identification of twenty markers that were affected by culturing in the presence of fetal bovine serum (FBS), human serum, or StemXVivo® Serum-Free Dendritic Cell Base Media. Each condition was performed with and without polarizing stimuli.

Our scientists develop products to help further your research goals. In fact, you will often rub elbows with our scientists at research meetings either with the posters they present or their inherent interest in the same topics presented in your own research. Our scientists take particular pride in hearing that the products they developed are being used in your lab.
