Human EpiVita Media provides an excellent research tool to study epidermal and epithelial cell biology in a serum-free culture environment. EpiVita greatly extends the in vitro lifespan of both neonatal and adult Human Epidermal Keratinocytes (HEK). This increase exceeds other commercially available, serum-free media while maintaining excellent cell morphology. HEK grown in EpiVita retain a more homogeneous phenotype, consisting of small refractile cells with minimal enlargement. When grown in EpiVita media, the most highly optimized formulation in its class, our HEK can be cultured through 20 population doublings for adult cells and 25 for neonatal cells.
When combined with specific growth supplements, EpiVita Basal Medium also provides excellent culture conditions for a wide variety of epithelial cells. 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.
CAI media are tested for sterility in order to confirm no bacteria, yeast or fungi contaminate the solutions. The products undergo further quality control for correct pH, osmolality and lack of endotoxins. A panel of different bioassays affirm the media sustain a proper environment for expected cell-type-specific culture, growth, plating, karyotype, physiology, morphology, viability, population doublings, surface markers, cryopreservation, differentiation and/or induction.
