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.
Shown above: Human Prostate Epithelial Cells, passage 3, 5 days after inoculation with 2,500 cells/cm2 (100X).
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.
Shown below: Human Prostate 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.
