Product Description

VascuLife® VEGF-Mv (containing Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor) is a medium optimized for the culture of Human Microvascular Endothelial Cells. VascuLife® supports the rapid proliferation of these cells in a 5% serum environment.

VascuLife® VEGF-Mv Medium grows Human Dermal Microvascular Endothelial Cells and other Human Microvascular Endothelial Cells 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.

VascuLife VEGF-mv chart VascuLife® Basal Medium contains no antimicrobials and no phenol red. Lifeline® offers these traditional supplements, but they are not required for eukaryotic cell proliferation. VascuLife® VEGF-Mv contains rh VEGF which may affect stimulation assays.
