Gain Consistency with our Single lot Media and Reagents

Our best-selling medium is optimized for use for many cell culture experiments. This medium is formulated with 10% serum. Kit consists of 500mL Cell Systems Medium, 5mL CultureBoost™ (containing animal derived growth factors) and 10mL Attachment Factor™ (extracellular matrix reagent for coating flasks). This becomes a complete medium once activated with the included CultureBoost™ supplement.


Available Formats

Available in one 500 mL container with 5mL and 10mL vials.


Characteristics of Cell Systems Serum-Containing Medium:

Medium contains no added hormones. Medium contains no antibiotics; however, Bac-Off® (4Z0-643), is the recommended antibiotic for all Cell Systems media. Bac-Off® is used at or above the 2µg/mL MIC of aerobic Gram-positive and Gram-negative microorganisms.

Medium contains no phenol red. Phenol red in cell culture medium binds to receptors on cell surfaces and causes the cell to respond as though pharmacologic levels of estrogen and/or inflammatory mediators (such as prostaglandin or thromboxane A2) are present in the medium. We exclude this unnecessary additive in order to optimize experimental conditions for researchers.


Use with Attachment Factor™

For best results, use Cell Systems Medium in conjunction with cell culture vessels coated with Attachment Factor™ extracellular matrix reagent. See the Attachment Factor™ protocol.


Medium Storage

Cell Systems Medium is shipped at ambient temperature. Upon arrival, immediately refrigerate the kit at 2 - 8°C. Once the medium is supplemented with CultureBoost, or any component of the medium kit is opened, the shelf life is 30 days at refrigerated (2 - 8°C) temperatures.

4Z0-500 is Certified and intended for experimental application. Cell Systems media and reagents are Sterile, made with WFI and all components are cGMP and ISO Compliant.
