Product Description

VascuLife® SMC medium is optimized for the culture of Human Smooth Muscle Cells (SMC). VascuLife® SMC supports the growth of these cells over a period of at least 15 population doublings. VascuLife® Basal Medium contains no antimicrobials and no phenol red.

  • Kit format for formulation flexibility:  Offered in a kit format composed of VascuLife® Basal Medium (500 mL) and associated supplements and growth factors called the VascuLife® SMC LifeFactors Kit.  This kit allows you to prepare fresh medium in your laboratory, extending shelf life and enhancing performance.
  • Protective packaging: VascuLife® Basal Medium is provided in a light-protected 500 mL bottle.

VascuLife Smooth Muscle Cell MediumVascuLife® SMC Medium grows Human Smooth Muscle Cells through at least 15 population doublings at rates that meet or exceed other commercially available serum-containing media, while maintaining excellent cell morphology.

Superior proliferation: In comparisons with other commercially-available media, VascuLife® shows superior proliferation at different seeding densities.Shown at left: Human Aortic Smooth Muscle Cells, passage 2, 4 days after inoculation with 2,500 cells/cm2 (100X).

Shown below: Human Aortic Smooth Muscle Cells inoculated at low seeding density in 24-well plates. Higher fluorescence represents a greater number of cells per well, and therefore better proliferation.Smooth Muscle Cell Medium Comparison
