Skeletal Muscle Cell Growth Medium (Ready-to-use)
Skeletal Muscle Cell Growth Medium is a low-serum medium (5% V/V) developed for the expansion of human skeletal muscle cell cultures. The media are optimized for primary human cells, but can also be used for murine, rat, canine, and rabbit skeletal muscle cells.Recommended for:Human Skeletal Muscle Cells (SkMC)
Part of a Cell Culture System offered in a variety of formats:Growth Medium (Ready-to-use): Includes Basal Medium and SupplementMixGrowth Medium Kit: Includes Basal Medium and SupplementPackSupplementMix: Contains all media supplements premixed in one vialSupplementPack: Contains all media supplements as individual vials
All lots of PromoCell Skeletal Muscle Cell Growth Medium are subjected to comprehensive quality control tests using human primary SkMC. Each lot is checked for growth promoting activity, adherence rate, and typical morphology of the tested SkMC. Approved in-house lots of media are used as a reference. In addition, all lots of media have been tested for the absence of microbial contaminants (fungi, bacteria, mycoplasma).
Final supplement concentrations after addition to the basal medium:Fetal Calf Serum: 0.05 ml / mlFetuin (bovine): 50 µg / mlEpidermal Growth Factor (recombinant human): 10 ng / mlBasic Fibroblast Growth Factor (recombinant human): 1 ng / mlInsulin (recombinant human): 10 µg / mlDexamethasone: 0.4 µg / ml
