MEM with Earle’s Salts, with Stable Glutamine

Minimum Essential Medium (MEM) is one of the most frequently used cell culture media. It is suitable for a variety of adherent or suspension cell types.

MEM (Minimum Essential Medium) with Earle's Salts was originally developed by Harry Eagle and from there modified in several ways (e.g. alpha modification) to suit many cell culture applications. It is used for cultivation of numerous suspension and adherent cells, including HeLa, BHK-21, HEK 293, HEP-2, HT-1080, MCF-7, fibroblasts, and primary rat astrocytes.

This modification of MEM with Earle's Salts is supplemented with Stable Glutamine. Stable glutamine (also known as L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine) is a direct substitute for L-glutamine and has an increased stability.

Liquid media provide basic nutrients for all cell culture applications. Each of our high-quality cell culture media is manufactured according to the originally published formula or modifications essential to the consistent performance and stability of the culture medium.
