Medium carefully optimized for the characteristics and requirements unique to Rat Brain Endothelial Cells.  Attention to detail ensures ideal cell health, viability, performance, physiology, morphology, consistency and data.
Use with:
Rat Brain Endothelial Cell Media, with components and supplements optimized for rodent CNS vascular cells.


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.
Laboratory research use only (RUO). Not for human, clinical, diagnostic or veterinary use.
