DescriptionHuMEC Basal Serum-Free Medium is designed to work with HuMEC Supplement Kit (SKU# 12755013). Together, these products are engineered specifically for the culture of human mammary epithelial cells (SKU# A10565). This translates to greater experimental validity, more reproducible results, and reduction of lot-to-lot variability and aberrations that can occur with the addition of serum. Human mammary epithelial cells cultured in HuMEC Medium have gene expression profiles consistent with normal mammary epithelial cells, as tested on a cDNA microarray.
HuMEC Medium is optimized specifically for the growth of human mammary epithelial cells, and has been performance tested in a growth assay using normal human mammary epithelial cells. HuMEC Medium promotes superior growth of normal human mammary epithelial cells, making it ideal for researchers in breast cancer, drug discovery, and other aspects of breast biology.
