Medium carefully optimized for the characteristics and requirements unique to Human Bronchial and Tracheal Epithelial Cells.  Attention to detail ensures ideal cell health, viability, performance, physiology, morphology, consistency and data.  As with the majority of our epithelial cell media, this product contains no serum.
Use with:
EpiVita Basal Medium (See image in "Details" tab), used in conjunction with Human Bronchial/Tracheal Epithelial Cell Growth Supplement, provides excellent culture conditions for HBEpC and HTEpC.  This robust and versatile basal medium is animal origin-free, and contains essential & non-essential amino acids, vitamins, other organic compounds, trace minerals and inorganic salts.  Available only from Cell Applications, top-performing EpiVita Basal Medium (plus supplement), outperforms competitor formulations by a wide margin. Manufactured in a GMP certified facility, EpiVita is an ideal choice for fundamental life science studies, pharmaceutical drug discovery & toxicity assay, and translational research aimed at taking discoveries from the bench to the clinic.
Laboratory research use only (RUO). Not for human, clinical, diagnostic or veterinary use.
(Click to Enlarge) Human Bronchial/Tracheal Epithelial Cell Media is quality-tested for sterility, with no bacteria, yeast or fungi contamination.  It also has correct pH, osmolality, passes low endotoxin criteria and promotes cell attachment, proliferation and spreading.



EpiVita Basal Med w/ Growth Supp Increases HBEpC Lifespan
A. Population Doublings (L) & Cumulative PDs (R) for adult HBEpC grown in EpiVita Basal Medium with added Bronchial/Tracheal Epithelial Growth Supplement.  B. Growth Density in standard Bronchial/Tracheal Epithelial Cell Growth Medium.
