OcuLife™ is optimized for the culture of Human Corneal Epithelial Cells.
OcuLife™ culture medium supports the growth of these cells over a period of at least three passages.
OcuLife™ contains no antimicrobials and no phenol red.
Lifeline® basal media require the appropriate LifeFactors to promote guaranteed proliferation and function of cells.
- Protective packaging: OcuLifeTM Basal Medium is provided in a light-protected 500 mL bottle.
OcuLifeTM Medium grows Human Corneal Epithelial Cells with optimal morphology over a period of at least three passages. In comparisons with other commercially available media, OcuLifeTM shows superior proliferation at different seeding densities.
Shown left: Human Corneal Epithelial Cells, passage 3, 8 days after inoculation at 5,000 cells/cm2 (100X).
Shown below: Human 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.
OcuLife™ Basal Medium has been quality tested for:
- Sterility: Negative for bacteria and fungal growth
- pH: Negative for bacteria and fungal growth
- Cell Performance: Rate of proliferation and morphology
- Osmolality: 315 +/- 10 mOsm
- Endotoxin: < 0.5 EU/mL
