Brinster's medium for ovum culture (BMOC) is a simple chemically defined media containing bovine serum albumin (BSA) developed by Ralph Brinster for in vitro development of mouse oocytes. This medium is a variation of the original formulation as it does not contain antibiotics. Brinster's medium has also been used for culture of other mammalian embryos during the early stages of development.

  • Gibco Brinster's medium is unique from other media as it contains no amino acids or vitamins
  • It is modified as follows: with bovine serum albumin, sodium pyruvate; without L-glutamine, HEPES, phenol red
  • Supplemented with bovine serum albumin required for supporting oocyte maturation and early stages of mammalian embryo development and pyruvate as essential energy source
  • Uses sodium bicarbonate buffer system (2.1g/L) and therefore requires 5-10% CO2 environment to maintain physiological pH
  • Sustainable packaging
