  • Vaginal Epithelial Cell Basal Medium (ATCC® PCS-480-030)

    ATCC® Number: PCS-480-030

    Quantity: 485 mL
    Storage: 2 to 8°C; protect from light
    Applications: Vaginal Epithelial Cell Basal Medium is a sterile, phenol red-free, liquid tissue culture medium intended for use as one component in a complete ATCC® Primary Cell Solutions™ system. This serum-free system is designed to support vaginal epithelial cells derived from normal human vaginal tissue. Vaginal Epithelial Cell Basal Medium contains essential and non-essential amino acids, vitamins, other organic compounds, trace minerals and inorganic salts. To support the proliferation and plating efficiency of various types of vaginal epithelial cells, Vaginal Cell Basal Medium must be supplemented with the appropriate cell-specific growth kit. When using this complete media system, the growth of vaginal epithelial cells is supported without the use of feeder layers, extracellular matrix proteins or other substrates. 


    • For vaginal epithelial cells derived from vaginal tissue (e.g., Primary Vaginal Epithelial Cells, Normal, Human, ATCC PCS-480-010), supplement Vaginal Epithelial Cell Basal Medium with the Vaginal Epithelial Cell Growth Kit (ATCC PCS-480-040).
    • Optional media supplements:
      1. Gentamicin-Amphotericin B Solution (ATCC PCS-999-025)
      2. Penicillin-Streptomycin-Amphotericin B Solution (ATCC PCS-999-002)

    Comments:

    This reagent affords high levels of gene expression in a variety of cell types and is suitable for both transient and stable transfection. GeneXPlus works effectively in large scale reactions, producing high protein yields. Since the reagent is composed of animal-origin free components and is serum compatible, there is no need for any culture medium change after transfection.

     

    GeneXPlus Transfection Reagent has been optimized for use with HEK293T/17 SF suspension cells (ATCC ACS-4500) and HEKPlus SFM (ATCC ACS-4002) to reproducibly express a wide range of proteins at high levels.
