Product Type DMEM media
Quantity 10 x 500mL
Shelf Life 12 months from date of manufacture
Storage Requirements Storage: 2-8° C. Protect from light
With Additives High Glucose, Non Essential Amino Acids, Sodium pyruvate, Phenol Red
Without Additives L-glutamine

  • Contains 4 times the concentration of amino acids and vitamins than the original Eagle's Minimal Essential Medium
  • Originally formulated with low glucose (1g/L) and sodium pyruvate, but is often used with higher glucose levels, with or without sodium pyruvate
  • Contains no proteins, lipids, or growth factors
  • Requires supplementation, commonly with 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS)
  • Uses sodium bicarbonate buffer system (3.7g/L), and therefore requires a 5 to 10% CO2 environment to maintain physiological pH
  • Cells successfully cultured in DMEM include primary fibroblasts, neurons, glial cells, HUVECs, and smooth muscle cells, cell lines such as HeLa, 293, Cos-7, and PC-12
