Medium carefully optimized for the characteristics and requirements unique to smooth muscle cells.  Attention to detail ensures ideal cell health, viability, performance, physiology, morphology, consistency and data.
Use with:
Rat Smooth Muscle Cell Media. With growth factors, supplements and components optimized for rodent blood vessel cells, including aortic and arterial SMC.


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.
