Creative Bioarray Osteoblast Growth Medium has been optimized for the in vitro cultivation of human osteoblasts. Creative Bioarray Osteoblast Mineralization Medium has been developed for the efficient induction of strong mineralization in human osteoblast cultures. Extensive extracellular calcium-deposits can be observed after 21 days by following an easy one-step protocol. The Media are optimized for primary human cells, but can also be used for bovine, murine, and rat osteoblasts as well as osteoblast cell lines. The Media kit consist of one bottle of Basal Medium and one vial of SupplementMix. Adding the SupplementMix to the Basal Medium results in the complete Medium. Basal Medium (with or without phenol red) as well as the Osteoblast Growth Medium SupplementMix can also be purchased separately.
All lots of Creative Bioarray Osteoblast Growth Medium are subjected to comprehensive quality control tests using primary human osteoblasts. Each lot is checked for growth promoting activity, adherence rate, and typical morphology of the tested osteoblast
Storage and Shipping
Store the Basal Medium at 4 to 8 °C in the dark and the SupplementMix at -20 °C immediately after arrival. Do not freeze the Basal Medium. If stored properly, the products are stable until the expiry date stated on the label. After adding the SupplementMix to the Basal Medium, the shelf life of the complete medium is 6 weeks at 4 to 8 °C. Do not freeze the complete medium. For use, pre-warm only an aliquot of the complete medium and keep the remaining medium refrigerated at 4 to 8 °C.
Note: The SupplementMix is delivered thawed and can be frozen after arrival without losing any activity.
