The Proven Platelet Lysate Leader – Now heparin-free!

About PLTGold®
Xeno-Free hPL. No Trade-Offs.

If you haven’t switched to a xeno-free media supplement, now is the time to try the BEST! PLTGold® contains all the growth factors and proteins that maximize cell growth without the need to worry about animal-based supplements or lot-to-lot variability. Other xeno-free hPLs compromise performance and can’t be completely clot free. Not anymore. With PLTGold® there is no clot formation, eliminating the need for heparin. It is available in research and clinical cGMP grades with no trade-offs. PLTGold® is an evolutionary step up in human platelet lysate.

Why Offer Heparin-Free?

The use of the first generation hPL (PLTMax®) involves the addition of heparin to the cell culture media to prevent clotting. Heparin is purified and refined from swine according to cGMP methods and is one of the most widely used drugs in humans. There has been no overt requirement for removal of heparin. However; some quality systems have requested its removal or replacement from cell culture processes in an effort to remove all xenogeneic components. PLTGold® is an unfractionated product derived from human platelets that does not require the addition of heparin. It remains clot-free with performance equivalent to the original PLTMax® platelet lysate.
