Serum-free medium for a wide variety of anchorage-dependent cells
4 x 500 mL
SKU: 05-060-1A



Product Overview:

BIO-MPM-1 Medium is a multi-purpose, serum-free medium for culture of a wide variety of anchorage-dependent cells. After the addition of 2mM glutamine, BIO-MPM-1 Medium is ready to use for adherent cells. The formulation contains no albumin, which has been found to be non-essential for cell growth, and even prevents efficient adhesion in some cases. The protein content of BIO-MPM-1 is therefore less than 30 mg/L, and the medium contains no growth factors or hormones other than insulin. The formulation does not contain an attachment factor, which in many (but not all) cases must be added for successful use.

BIO-MPM-1 Medium is suitable for a wide variety of cells. The following are some of the cells which have been cultured with BIO-MPM-1:

  • HUVECs
  • MDCK cells
  • HEK293
  • Murine aortic cells (Aortic ring assay)
  • Human chondrocytes
  • Human placental trophoblast cells
  • Rat heart cells and cardiac fibroblasts
  • Chicken retinal cells
  • Avian epiphyseal chondrocytes
  • Human NK cells
  • Murine neonatal neurons
  • Starfish epithelial cells
  • HK2 cells
