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 (for details link). 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. The remaining LifeFactors® (growth factors and supplements) are packaged in a convenient gas-impermeable pouch for easy storage.
VascuLife® 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. In comparisons with other commercially-available media, VascuLife® shows superior proliferation at different seeding densities.
