Defined media for tumor cells

Each cell type has its own characteristic metabolic processes which results in specific demands for nutrient supply. With TumorPlus 263 and TumorPlus 264, Capricorn Scientific presents the first products of its new Plus-Media-Line.

A defined medium is superior to classical culture media in many ways. Its cell type specific compositions with growth factors, vitamins, trace elements and protein fractions guarantee optimal culture conditions even for sensitive cell lines. The TumorPlus 263 and TumorPlus 264 defined cell culture media are supplemented with pre-tested and selected recombinant serum components which guarantee the highest performance for most tumor cells.

The little extra

TumorPlus 264 also contains synthetic iron-binding molecules, which facilitate the transport of iron ions into the cell. The significantly increased oxygen uptake results in a higher and defined growth rate. This medium is ideal for very fast growing cells.

Just use it

Plus media are easy to use and further supplementation with serum is not necessary. Batch variations are therefore reduced to a minimum and the constant quality guarantees reproducible results. Contamination risks are minimized because the ready-to-use media require no further manipulation before being utilized in cell culture.

  • Ready and easy to use
  • Optimized complete media
  • Defined culture conditions
  • No addition of serum necessary
  • Reproducible working conditions

Scientifically proven

Scientific studies have shown considerably improved cell growth for the cultivation of tumor cells in TumorPlus 263 and TumorPlus 264 compared to standard media.

HeLa cells were seeded with three different media in a Microtiter plate. After 7 days, growth promotion was measured with a MTT cell proliferation assay.
