Creative Bioarray Mammary Epithelial Cell Growth Medium is a serum-free medium developed for the in vitro cultivation of epithelial cells from the mammary gland. The medium is optimized for primary human cells, but can also be used for rat and murine mammary epithelial cells as well as mammary carcinoma cell lines. Creative Bioarray Mammary Epithelial Cell Growth Medium is available as Medium kit. 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 SupplementPack to the Basal Medium results in the complete Growth Medium. Basal Medium (with or without phenol red) as well as the SupplementPack can also be purchased separately.
