- Tissue: Kidney
- Additional Attributes: Media
- Packaging:Basal Medium plus LifeFactor Kit
- Features:Low serum 0,5 %, Phenol-red free
RenaLife™ medium is optimized for the low-serum culture of Human Renal Epithelial Cells. RenaLife™ supports the growth of these cells over a period of at least 15 population doublings.
RenaLife™ Basal Medium contains no antimicrobials and no phenol red. These supplements are available from Lifeline® but are not required for eukaryotic cell proliferation.
Kit format for formulation flexibility: RenaLife™ culture medium is offered in a kit format composed of RenaLife™ Basal Medium (500mL) 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: RenaLife™ Basal Medium is provided in a light-protected 500 mL bottle. The remaining LifeFactors® (growth factors and supplements; for details link) are packaged in a convenient gas-impermeable pouch for easy storage.
ISO-Style Testing for Guaranteed Consistency and Reproducible Results
Every production lot of RenaLife™ Medium is extensively tested using Human Renal Epithelial Cells to ensure lot-to-lot consistency.
Sterility Testing: Negative for bacterial and fungal growth
pH: 7.5 +/- 0.2
Cell Testing: Rate of proliferation and morphology
Osmolality: 315 +/- 10 mOsm
Endotoxin: < 0.5 EU/mL
RenaLifeTM Medium grows Human Renal Epithelial Cells through at least 15 population doublings at rates that are comparable to other commercially available low-serum media, while maintaining more characteristic epithelial morphology, e.g., more compact cuboidal shape, high refractive index and clarity of the cytoplasm.
