Stem Cell Supplements

Stimulate a more natural biological way of growing stem cells with human platelet lysate.

Platelets play an important role in tissue repair and wound healing within the body. The growth factors and cytokines naturally found in platelet-rich plasma are contained within extracted human platelet lysate. Human platelet lysate is an effective, superior supplement for the expansion of a variety of cell types, including MSCs, ECs, iPSCs, T cells, and more.

Captivate Bio currently offers one of the largest portfolio’s of human platelet lysate products which enables unparalleled cell growth and is among one of the most cost effective and natural way of growing cells when compared to FBS and Human AB Serum. The PLTGold®, PLTMax®, and ELAREM™ products are currently available in research and GMP grades, as well as pathogen inactivated and gamma irradiated formats.
