Creative Bioarray Keratinocyte Growth Medium 2 is a serum-free medium that was developed for the in vitro cultivation of epidermal keratinocytes without feeder cells. The medium is optimized for primary human cells, but can also be used for horse, porcine, as well as mouse and rat keratinocytes when adapting the calcium chloride (CaCl2) concentration. In addition, it is suited for rat corneal keratinocytes. Creative Bioarray Keratinocyte Growth Medium 2 is available as Medium kit. The Medium kit consists of a 500 ml bottle of Basal Medium, one vial of CaCl2 stock solution, and one vial of SupplementMix. The Medium Kit consists of a 500 ml bottle of Basal Medium and the SupplementPack (a set of individual vials with pre-measured supplements) allowing the user full control over the media formulation. Adding the Supplement solutions to the Basal Medium results in the complete Growth Medium. Basal Medium (with or without phenol red), SupplementMix as well as SupplementPack can also be purchased separately.
