Mammary Epithelial Cell Basal Medium is a sterile, phenol red-free, liquid tissue culture medium designed to support epithelial cells derived from normal human female breast. Mammary Epithelial Cell Basal Medium contains essential and non-essential amino acids, vitamins, other organic compounds, trace minerals and inorganic salts. To support the proliferation and plating efficiency of mammary epithelial cells ATCC PCS-600-010, Mammary Cell Basal Medium must be supplemented with the Mammary Epithelial Cell Growth Kit (ATCC PCS-600-040).
ATCC’s Human Mammary Epithelial Cells cultured in Mammary Epithelial Cell complete medium (basal medium plus growth kit) is an optimal serum-free culture model for many research areas. Common uses of HMEC include the study of breast cancer development, three dimensional culture and carcinogen screening.
Optional media supplements:
- Gentamicin-Amphotericin B Solution (ATCC PCS-999-025)
- Penicillin-Streptomycin-Amphotericin B Solution (ATCC PCS-999-002)
- Phenol Red (ATCC PCS-999-001)
