ProstaLife™ medium is optimized for the culture of Human Male Reproductive Cells, including Prostate Epithelial Cells and Seminal Vesicle Epithelial Cells.
ProstaLife™ Basal Medium contains no antimicrobials and phenol red. These supplements are available from Lifeline® but are not required for eukaryotic cell proliferation.
- Kit format for formulation flexibility: ProstaLife™ culture medium is offered in a kit format composed of basal medium and associated supplements and growth factors called “LifeFactors®.” This kit allows you to prepare fresh medium in your laboratory, extending shelf life and enhancing performance.
- Protective packaging: ProstaLife™ Basal Medium is provided in a light-protected 500 mL bottle. The remaining LifeFactors® (growth factors and supplements) are packaged in a convenient gas-impermeable pouch for easy storage.
ProstaLife™ Medium grows Human Prostate Epithelial Cells and Human Male Reproductive Epithelial Cells through at least 15 population doublings at rates that meet or exceed other commercially-available media while maintaining excellent cell morphology. In comparisons with other commercially-available media, ProstaLife™ shows superior proliferation at different seeding densities.
