Using IMDM

  • IMDM, a modification of Dulbecco's Modified Eagle Medium, includes selenium as well as additional amino acids and vitamins
  • This unique medium lacks iron, with potassium nitrate replacing ferric nitrate
  • IMDM contains no proteins, lipids, or growth factors therefore it requires supplementation, commonly with 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS)
  • IMDM uses a sodium bicarbonate buffer system (3.024 g/L), and therefore requires a 5–10% CO2 environment to maintain physiological pH
