The use of Antibiotics has become a widely used tool in the cell culture field. Most of the antibiotics suppress the growth of microorganisms by blocking an anabolic pathway. If the Antibiotic required is not listed, please contact us, 01435 517000 or email email@example.com.
Trypsin is a porcine pancreas-derived enzyme that is commonly used for the dissociation and disaggregation of anchorage-dependent mammalian cells and tissues. The concentration of trypsin necessary to dislodge the cells from their substrate depends on the sensitivity of the cells.
The advantages of alternatives over the traditional Trypsin/EDTA treatment are that it is less damaging to cells leading to increased viability and carries a lower risk of introducing adventitious agents into cell cultures because it does not contain any mammalian or bacterially derived proteins.
A modification of BME featuring increased amino acid levels to more closely resemble the protein content of human cells. MEM serves as a general used medium ideal for the growth and maintenance of a wide range of mammalian cell types. Often used to support anchorage-dependent cells, however modified solutions can be used to support other cell types including calcium-free MEM for suspension cultures and MEM with Hanks’ salts for diploid cells.
RPMI are general purpose enriched media with extensive applications for a broad spectrum of mammalian and hybridoma cells including human myeloma, mouse hybridoma, human leukocytes, and B and T lymphocytes. It was originally formulated for suspension cultures and monolayer culture of human leukemic cells.
