Your experimental design will dictate which Endothelial Cell Growth Kit should be used.
Use of the Endothelial Cell Growth Kit - VEGF (ATCC® PCS-100-041 ™) is recommended only when the presence of this growth factor will not interfere with the research being performed. The VEGF growth kit typically supports a faster rate of proliferation because of the presence of several purified human recombinant (rh) growth factors (rh VEGF, rh EGF, rh FGF basic and rh IGF-1) combined with heparin and hydrocortisone.
Use of the Endothelial Cell Growth Kit - BBE (ATCC® PCS-100-040 ™), on the other hand, containing Bovine Brain Extract (BBE), can be used to mimic a more "authentic" culture environment without the addition of recombinant growth factors.
