Gibco™ BenchStable™ MEM, 500 mL
Gibco Minimum Essential Medium (MEM) is one of the most commonly used of all cell culture media. MEM can be used with a variety of suspension and adherent mammalian cells, including HeLa, BHK-21, 293, HEP-2, HT-1080, MCF-7, fibroblasts, and primary rat astrocytes. We offer a variety of MEM modifications for a range of cell culture applications.
MEM is available with Earle’s salts for use in a CO2 incubator, or with Hanks’ salts for use without CO2.
This MEM includes Earle’s salts.
BenchStable MEM has been engineered for storage at room temperature while supporting cellular proliferation and maximum cell densities comparable to conventional MEM when supplemented with ≥10% fetal bovine serum (FBS).
- Optimized for room temperature stability.
- With GlutaMAX, Phenol Red.
- Without HEPES.
- MEM with GlutaMAX supplement minimizes toxic ammonia build-up and improves cell viability and growth in an easy-to-use format.
