Product brief introduction

Classic Cell Culture Media:

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. 



MEM (Minimum Essential Medium)

MEM alpha, or Minimal Essential Media with alpha modifications, was first described by Stanners (1971) in culturing mouse-hamster hybrid cells. In addition to Eagle’s MEM, Stanners’ formulation includes non-essential amino acids, ascorbic acid, biotin, vitamin B12, lipoic acid, sodium pyruvate, ribonucleosides and deoxyribonucleosides. MEM alpha has since been used in many applications, such as in maturing human embryos into blastocysts, culturing functional organ tissue in microgravity, and culturing primary cells and cell lines. Commercial formulations of ready-made MEM alpha may come with or without nucleosides.
