F-12 has since been used for serum-free growth of CHO cultures as well as serum-supplemented growth of other mammalian cells, including chondrocytes and rat prostate epithelial cells. This Ham's F-12 is modified as follows: with L-glutamine, phenol red.

  • Contains zinc, putrescine, hypoxanthine, and thymidine
  • Contains no proteins or growth factors
  • Requires supplementation, commonly with 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS)
  • Uses sodium bicarbonate buffer system (1.176g/L), and therefore requires 5-10% CO2 environment to maintain physiological pH
  • Sustainable packaging
