Kit consists of 500mL 4Z3-500-R Medium, 10mL CultureBoost-R™ (containing human recombinant growth factors) and 10mL Attachment Factor™ (extracellular matrix reagent for coating flasks). This is not a complete medium. For complete medium, add 5-20% Serum (Defined FBS or equivalent) and the included CultureBoost-R™ supplement.
Kit contains one 500 mL container and two 10mL vials.
Characteristics of Cell Systems Medium Formulated without Serum:
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.
Cell Systems Medium is shipped at ambient temperature. If the entire unit will not be used within 30 days, supplement the medium with CultureBoost™, then aliquot and freeze in smaller units which will be used within 30 days. Otherwise, immediately refrigerate the medium and supplement. Once the unit is supplemented, or any component of the medium kit is opened, the shelf life is 30 days at refrigerated (2 - 8°C) temperatures.
4Z3-500-R 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.
