The MACS Cell Storage Solution is a ready-to-use, animal component-free and serum-free media formulation specifically developed for the hypothermic storage (2-8°C) of fresh primary single-cell suspensions. Ideally suited for the short-term storage or shipping of primary cells. It has been validated on a variety of primary cell suspensions, such as human lysed blood, peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PMBCs), isolated human T cells and monocytes.

Cell recovery and viability of lysed blood samples stored in MACS Cell Storage Solution.
Whole blood samples were lysed using the Red Blood Cell Lysis Solution to remove erythrocytes. Aliquots of the lysed blood cell suspensions were prepared for storage. Cells were stored at a concentration of 1×10

cells per mL of MACS Cell Storage Solution for 24 h, 48 h, or 72 h at 2−8 °C.
Cell recovery (A) and viability (B) of lysed blood cells are shown for each storage time period. The figures show the mean and standard deviation of three donors. Cell recovery represents the percentage of viable cells recovered after storage with reference to the initial number of cells that were stored.

Detailed product information

Background information

Sometimes primary cells cannot be used immediately for analysis, or they need to be shipped to different locations to be analyzed. If the cells are to be used within few days, it is essential to store them in a supporting medium to ensure that cell viability and composition of the cell suspensions are preserved, as well as cell functionally is maintained.
MACS Cell Storage Solution is a ready-to-use, animal component-free and serum-free media formulation that preserves cell viability, composition and function of fresh primary single-cell suspensions for up to 72h at 2-8°C. After storage in MACS Cell Storage Solution, cells can be directly used for downstream applications such as cell isolation, cell analysis, cell culture, or molecular analysis (e.g. single-cell sequencing).
