Cell Systems⎢Medium Kit With Serum and Without Growth Factor (4Z0-500-S)
Medium Kit With Serum and Without Growth Factor
Medium is formulated with 10% serum. Kit consists of 500mL 4Z0-500-S Cell Systems Medium (formulated without growth factor) and 10mL Attachment Factor™. This is not a complete medium. For complete medium, add animal derived growth factor (CultureBoost™, 4CB-500) or human recombinant growth factor (CultureBoost-R™ 4CB-500-R). 4Z0-500-S 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.
Available in one 500 mL container.
Certified for use with more than 100 human and animal cell cultures and cell lines including these ACBRI Certified cells:
Bone Marrow Cells (CFU-F and Erythroid Burst Cultures)
Connective Tissue Cells
Dermal Fibroblast Cells
Endothelial Cells (Aortic, Arterial, Coronary Artery, Vascular and Venous)
Fetal Lung Cells

Bovine and Porcine large vessel and microvessel Endothelial Cells
Characteristics of Cell Systems Serum-Containing Medium
Cell Systems Medium contains no added hormones.
Cell Systems Medium contains no antibiotics; however, Bac-Off® (Cat. #4Z0-643), is the recommended antibiotic for all Cell Systems medium. Bac-Off® is at or above the [2ng/mL] MIC of aerobic gram-positive and gram-negative microorganisms. (See Bac-Off® certificate.)
Cell Systems 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. It is difficult to understand how a realistic baseline can be ascertained under these conditions. The side-effects of phenol red can be avoided very simply: leave it out. The presence of phenol red is unnecessary and potentially catastrophic to experimentation.
