MegaCell Media

The MegaCell media product line is a group of fortified media based on classical media formulations that have been enriched to support cell growth under reduced serum conditions. When supplemented with 3% FBS these media have been shown to support cell growth comparable to non-fortified classical media supplemented with 10% serum without the necessity of weaning or adaptation. Additionally, the fortifications incorporated into the MegaCell media products have been found to allow the use of adult bovine and/or calf serum in place of more expensive and increasingly scarce fetal bovine serum. Recognizing the diversity of cell lines in use, Sigma has developed a total product line of media with a broad range of formulations and nutritional components to better serve our customers.
