Dulbecco's Modified Eagle's Medium (DME) Formulation

Many composition modifications of Eagle's Medium have been developed since the original formulation appeared in the literature. Among the most widely used of these modifications is Dulbecco's Modified Eagle's medium (DMEM). DMEM is a modification of Basal Medium Eagle (BME) that contains a four-fold higher concentration of amino acids and vitamins, as well as additional supplementary components. The original DMEM formula composition contains 1000 mg/L of glucose and was first reported for culturing embryonic mouse cells. A further alteration with 4500 mg/L glucose has proved to be optimal for the cultivation of certain cell types.
