PromoCell Melanocyte Growth Medium is a serum-free, PMA (Phorbol Myristate Acetate)-containing Medium and has been developed for the in vitro cultivation of juvenile melanocytes. Since PMA is a tumor promoting mitogen, it may interfere with some experimental approaches. In these cases, we recommend using the PMA-free Melanocyte Growth Medium M2.

The Melanocyte Growth Medium is optimized for primary human cells, but can also be used for equine, porcine, murine, and rat melanocytes.
