Using RPMI 1640
RPMI 1640 Medium is a unique classical cell culture media formulation as it contains a reducing agent called glutathione and high concentrations of vitamins. RPMI 1640 Medium contains biotin, vitamin B12, and PABA, which are not found in Eagle’s Minimum Essential Medium (EMEM) or Dulbecco’s Modified Eagle Medium (DMEM). This medium contains no proteins, lipids, or growth factors, and therefore requires supplementation with serum like FBS or platelet lysate.
