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.
