Opti-MEM™ I Reduced-Serum Medium is an improved Minimal Essential Medium (MEM) that allows for a reduction of Fetal Bovine Serum supplementation by at least 50% with no change in growth rate or morphology.
Manufacturer: Gibco™ LS31985062
Opti-MEMI medium is also recommended for use with cationic lipid transfection reagents, such as Lipofectamine™ reagent. Opti-MEM I medium can be used with a variety of suspension and adherent mammalian cells, including Sp2, AE-1, CHO, BHK-21, HEK, and primary fibroblasts.
- Opti-MEM I is modified as follows: with L-glutamine, phenol red
- Unique medium that contains insulin, transferrin, hypoxanthine, thymidine, and trace elements
- Additional components allow for reduction in serum supplementation by at least 50%
- Uses sodium bicarbonate buffer system (2.4g/L), and therefore requires a 5-10% CO2 environment to maintain physiological pH
- Sustainable packaging
