ATCC Eagle's Minimum Essential Medium (EMEM)
What is the difference between the standard Eagle's Minimum Essential Medium (EMEM) and the ATCC modification of EMEM?

The ATCC modification of Eagle's Minimum Essential Medium (EMEM), ATCC® 30-2003 ™, provides balanced energy sources to serve as carbon skeletons for anabolic processes as well as protein production and nucleic acid metabolism while limiting toxic ammonia build-up. The ATCC formulation for EMEM contains the eleven nonessential amino acids, and is formulated with a reduced sodium bicarbonate concentration for use with 5% CO2.
