    Applications:

    MCDB 131 Medium provides a defined and nutritionally balanced environment for mammalian cell culture. The medium includes trace elements and higher levels of certain vitamins and amino acids compared to basal medium. MCDB 131 Medium was originally developed for human microvascular endothelial cell (HUVEC) culture, but supports the growth of other cell types, including hepatocytes, smooth muscle cells, and cardiac myocytes.

  • Mesenchymal Stem Cell Basal Medium for Adipose, Umbilical and Bone Marrow-derived MSCs (ATCC® PCS-500-030)

    ATCC® Number: PCS-500-030
    Quantity: 485 mL
    Storage: 4 to 8°C, protect from light
    Applications:

    Mesenchymal Stem Cell Basal Medium for Adipose, Umbilical and Bone Marrow-derived MSCs is a sterile, phenol red-free, liquid tissue culture medium intended for use as one component in a complete ATCC® Primary Cell Solutions™ system. This low serum (2% FBS) system is designed to support mesenchymal stem cells derived from various normal human tissues including lipoaspirates and umbilical cord. Mesenchymal Stem Cell Basal Medium for Adipose, Umbilical and Bone Marrow-derived MSCs contains essential and non-essential amino acids, vitamins, other organic compounds, trace minerals and inorganic salts. To support the proliferation and plating efficiency of various types of adult stem cells, Mesenchymal Stem Cell Basal Medium must be supplemented with the appropriate cell-specific growth kit. When using this complete media system, the growth of undifferentiated mesenchymal stem cells is supported without the use of feeder layers, extracellular matrix proteins or other substrates. 

    1. For mesenchymal stem cells derived from human lipoaspirates (e.g., Adipose-Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells; Normal, Human, ATCC PCS-500-011) or umbilical cord (Umbilical Cord-Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells; Normal, Human, ATCC PCS-500-010), supplement Mesenchymal Stem Cell Basal Medium for Adipose, Umbilical and Bone Marrow-derived MSCs with the Mesenchymal Stem Cell Growth Kit for Adipose and Umbilical-derived MSCs –Low serum (ATCC PCS-500-040).
    2. For mesenchymal stem cells derived from bone marrow (Bone Marrow-derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells; Normal, Human, ATCC PCS-500-012) supplement Mesenchymal Stem Cell Basal Medium for Adipose, Umbilical and Bone Marrow-derived MSCs with the Mesenchymal  Stem Cell Growth Kit for Bone Marrow-derived MSCs (ATCC PCS-500-041)
    3. Optional media supplements:
      1. Gentamicin-Amphotericin B Solution (ATCC PCS-999-025)
      2. Penicillin-Streptomycin-Amphotericin B Solution (ATCC PCS-999-002)
      3. Phenol Red (ATCC PCS-999-001)
