What is hPL?

Human Platelet Lysate (hPL) is a cell culture growth supplement obtained from human platelets. hPL contains abundant human growth factors including PDGF, bFGF, EGF, TGF-beta1, VEGF, other cytokines and proteins which yield superior results when culturing many types of human cells, particularly human MSC, regardless of their tissue source.

Where serum (traditionally FBS or Human) is the supernatant of clotted blood, hPL is lysed platelets.
