Manufacturer: Gibco™ 12200069
IMDM, a modification of Dulbecco's Modified Eagle Medium, includes selenium as well as additional amino acids and vitamins. In addition, this unique medium lacks iron, with potassium nitrate replacing ferric nitrate.
This IMDM is modified as follows: with L-glutamine, phenol red; without α-thioglycerol, 2-mercaptoethanol. IMDM contains no proteins, lipids, or growth factors. Therefore, IMDM requires supplementation, commonly with 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). IMDM uses a sodium bicarbonate buffer system (3.024g/L), and therefore requires a 5-10% CO2 environment to maintain physiological pH.
Powder forms of Gibco cell culture medium require sodium bicarbonate supplementation, pH adjustment, and filtration at the time of preparation.
