OcuLife™ cell culture medium is optimized for the culture of Human Corneal Epithelial Cells.
OcuLife™ supports the growth of these cells over a period of at least three passages.
OcuLife™ Basal Medium contains no antimicrobials and no phenol red. Lifeline® offers antimicrobials and phenol red, but they are not required for eukaryotic cell proliferation.
Kit format for formulation flexibility: Offered in a kit format composed of basal medium and associated supplements and growth factors called LifeFactors® (for details link). This kit allows you to prepare fresh medium in your laboratory, extending shelf life and enhancing performance.
Protective packaging: OcuLifeTM 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.
OcuLife™ 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.
OcuLife™ Medium is tested for:
Sterility: Negative for bacteria and fungal growth
pH: 7.5 +/- 0.2
Cell Testing: Rate of proliferation and morphology
Osmolality: 315 +/- 10 mOsm
Endotoxin: < 0.5 EU/mL
