Medium (Ready-to-use)

The Medium (Ready-to-use) consists of a 500 ml bottle with Basal Medium and one vial with SupplementMix. Adding the SupplementMix to the Basal Medium results in the complete medium, which contains all the growth factors and supplements necessary for the propagation of the specific human primary cells in culture (including L-Glutamine, NaHCO3).

The shelf life of the Basal Medium is 9 months (at 4 to 8°C), that of the SupplementMix is 12 months (at -20°C) from the date of manufacture. After adding the SupplementMix, the shelf life of the complete medium is 6 weeks (at 4 to 8°C).

Medium Kit

The Medium Kit consists of a 500 ml bottle with Basal Medium and a SupplementPack. The SupplementPack is a set of individual vials with pre-measured supplements. Adding all components of the SupplementPack to the Basal Medium results in the complete medium, which contains all the growth factors and supplements necessary for the pro-pagation of the specific human primary cells in culture (including L-Glutamine, NaHCO3). Since all supplements can be added separately the user has full control over the media formulation and can adapt it to his experimental requirements.

The shelf life of the Basal Medium is 9 months (at 4 to 8°C), that of the SupplementPack is 12 months (at -20°C) from the date of manufacture. After adding the supplements, the shelf life of the complete medium is 6 weeks (at 4 to 8°C).

Basal Medium (with and without phenol red) as well as SupplementPacks can also be purchased separately.
