Your experimental design will dictate which microvascular endothelial cell growth kit should be used.
The Microvascular Endothelial Cell Growth Kit - VEGF (ATCC® PCS-110-041 ™) is recommended only when the presence of this growth factor will not interfere with the research being performed. This growth kit typically supports a faster rate of proliferation because of the presence of several purified human recombinant (rh) growth factors (rh VEGF, rh EGF, rh FGF basic and rh IGF-1) combined with heparin and hydrocortisone.
On the other hand, the Microvascular Endothelial Cell Growth Kit - BBE (ATCC® PCS-110-040 ™) contains Bovine Brain Extract. This growth kit is used to mimic a more "authentic" culture environment without the addition of recombinant growth factors.
