VascuLife® EnGS-Mv Medium (containing Endothelial Cell Growth Supplement) is optimized for the culture of Human Microvascular Endothelial Cells.
- VascuLife® culture medium supports the rapid proliferation of these cells in a 5% serum environment.
VascuLife® Basal Medium contains no antimicrobials and no phenol red.
VascuLife® EnGS-Mv is offered in a kit format, composed of basal medium (in a light-protected 500 mL bottle) and associated supplements and growth factors called “LifeFactors®” (packaged in a convenient gas-impermeable pouch for easy storage). This kit allows you to prepare fresh complete medium in your laboratory, extending shelf life and enhancing performance.
The LifeFactors® Kit includes:
VascuLife® EnGS-Mv Medium grows Human Microvascular Endothelial Cells, without the addition of human VEGF, at rates that meet or exceed other commercially available serum-containing media while maintaining excellent cell morphology. In comparisons with other commercially-available media, VascuLife® shows superior proliferation at different seeding densities.

Shown below: Human Dermal Microvascular Endothelial Cells inoculated at low seeding density in 24-well plates. Higher fluorescence represents a greater number of cells per well, and therefore, better proliferation.
Extensive Testing for Guaranteed Consistency and Reproducible Results
VascuLife® EnGS-Mv culture medium is quality tested for:
- Sterility: Negative for bacteria and fungal growth
- pH: 7.8 +/- 0.3
- Osmolality: 270 +/- 10 mOsm
- Endotoxin: < 0.5 EU/mL
Our ISO-style quality assurance ensures lot-to-lot consistency in every production run.
