LymphoONE T-Cell Expansion Xeno-Free Medium
LymphoONE T-Cell Expansion Xeno-Free Medium is specifically formulated for expansion and transduction of human T lymphocytes. It has been optimized to enable efficient T-cell proliferation with or without the addition of human serum or plasma. LymphoONE medium contains no protein other than pharmaceutical-grade human serum albumin and recombinant human insulin, and provides superior performance relative to other commonly used xeno-free media.

LymphoONE medium contains no proteins other than pharmaceutical-grade human serum albumin and recombinant human insulin, and provides superior performance relative to other commonly used xeno-free media.
Conventional culture systems typically require the addition of serum (or plasma) in order to achieve sufficient quantities of T cells for clinical research applications, but the availability of autologous serum varies, and it has been demonstrated that T cells expanded in the absence of serum can offer improved therapeutic performance (Janetzki et al. 2010; Medvec et al. 2018). By enabling robust expansion in the absence of human serum or plasma, LymphoONE medium is well-suited for immunotherapy research involving T cells.
T-cell activation using LymphoONE T-Cell Expansion Xeno-Free Medium in combination with anti-CD3 antibody, IL-2, and RetroNectin reagent results in enhanced T-cell expansion and yields higher proportions of naïve T cells relative to approaches employing IL-2 in combination with anti-CD3 and anti-CD28 antibodies.
As demonstrated by the data below, expansion in LymphoONE medium also yields higher proportions of naïve T cells as compared to other commonly used media, with or without the addition of serum.
- Xeno-free medium that enables efficient T-cell expansion with or without the addition of serum or plasma
- Supplemented with human serum albumin, recombinant human insulin, L-glutamine, and streptomycin
- Endotoxin tested (endotoxin <0.3 EU/ml)
- Compatible with CultiLife culture bags for large-scale expansion of T cells
- Anti-CD3/IL-2 T-cell activation in the presence of RetroNectin reagent* enhances proliferation and leads to a higher proportion of naïve T cells
*T-cell expansion by RetroNectin stimulation for uses other than research requires a license from Takara Bio Inc. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details.

RetroNectin Recombinant Human Fibronectin Fragment and RetroNectin GMP grade have widespread use as enhancers of retroviral or lentiviral gene transfer into hard-to-transduce cell types. Here, we present data on an additional application—the improved expansion of T cells from PBMCs and increased production of naïve T cells—using a combination of our products: GT-T551 T-cell medium, RetroNectin reagent, CultiLife culture bags, and anti-CD3 antibody.T-cell expansion tech note Related products
Scale up transduction of hematopoietic cells with CultiLife culture bags
CultiLife culture bags provide a closed, sterile, gas-permeable system that reduces the risk of culture contamination and user exposure to cell culture materials. A 300-ml format (which can be coated with RetroNectin reagent) is available for high-efficiency viral transduction of hematopoietic cells and a 1,000-ml format can be used to expand cell cultures following transduction. View our protocol and see how to set up your cell culture in a single small bag and then expand it into multiple larger bags.View protocol and specifications Buy now
