Product Description

OcuLife™ Basal Medium is optimized for the culture of Human Primary Corneal Epithelial Cells. OcuLife corneal epithelial basal medium supports the growth of these cells over a period of at least three passages and contains no antimicrobials and no phenol red.

Primary Corneal Epithelial Cells cultured in Lifeline® medium out-perform cells grown in any similar medium. 

You’ll get consistently reproducible results with OcuLife Basal Medium! This culture medium is balanced and supplemented expressly for Primary Corneal Epithelial Cells to maximize that individual cell type’s life expectancy.

  • Your Primary Corneal Cells will plate better using OcuLife optimized media (as compared to our nearest competitors’ media or traditional high-serum media)
  • Your Primary Epithelial Cells will grow more quickly in OcuLife Basal Medium than in other commercially-available media
  • Primary Cells will maintain better morphology when cultured in OcuLife Basal Medium

Use OcuLife LifeFactors Kit with the associated supplements and growth factors to promote guaranteed proliferation and function of cells.

  • Protective packaging:  OcuLife Basal Medium is provided in a light-protected 500 mL bottle.

Corneal Epithelial CellsOcuLife Medium grows Human Corneal Epithelial Cells with optimal morphology over a period of at least three passages. In comparisons with other commercially available media, OcuLife shows superior proliferation at different seeding densities.

Shown left: Human Primary Corneal Epithelial Cells, passage 3, 8 days after inoculation at 5,000 cells/cm2 (100X).

Shown below: Human Primary Corneal Epithelial Cells inoculated at the stated density in 24-well plates and stained with crystal violet. Higher O.D. 590 represents a greater number of cells per well, and therefore, better proliferation.
