MEM - Glasgow

With L-Glutamine
4 x 500 mL
SKU: 01-060-1A



Product Overview:

Glasgow's MEM (GMEM) was originally developed by Ian McPherson and Michael Stoker as a modification of Eagle's Medium (BME) with the addition of 10% tryptose phosphate and twice the normal concentrations of Amino Acids and Vitamins. It was used to study the genetic factors that affected cell competence. Glasgow's MEM was developed not only utilized to promote the growth of Baby Hamster Kidney cells (BHK-21) but also to study the genetic factors impacting cell competence. Glasgow's Modification MEM was uniquely designed and formulated quantitatively and qualitatively to provide a defined and optimally balanced cell culture milieu that selectively promotes the growth of specific cell types.

This GMEM is modified as follows:

  • Phenol Red
  • L-Glutamine
  • Glucose
