Classical cell culture media is designed to support the growth of a variety of microorganisms and cells. Our broad selection of growth media include products that are able to add nutrients, such as amino acids and nitrogen. We offer selective media used for growth of only select microorganisms and finally we offer differential media used distinguish one microorganism type from another growing on the same media.
Growth media is used either for cell culture or microbiological culture. These require nutrients, supplements, buffers and other reagents specific to the product being grown to maximize results and consistency. Amino acids, vitamins, and HEPES are among the assorted components added to culture media. L-glutamine and and L-alanyl-L-glutamine are used in neural cultures for most select survival. Specialty supplement mixtures are available for specific types of cells, such as MEM amino acids and MEM vitamins.
