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. Gibco MEM, developed by Harry Eagle, was based on his earlier formulation of Basal Medium Eagle (BME). Many other modifications of MEM followed, including Glasgow's MEM, MEM α, DMEM, and Temin's Modification.

  • Available with Earle's salts for use in CO2 incubator, or with Hank's salts for use without CO2
  • Modified as follows: with NEAA, low glucose and phenol red; without L-glutamine and HEPES
  • Made with Earle's salts
  • Contains no proteins, lipids, or growth factors
  • Requires supplementation, commonly with 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS)
  • Uses sodium bicarbonate buffer system (2.2g/L) and therefore requires 5-10% CO2 environment to maintain physiological pH
  • Sustainable packaging
