Minimum Essential Media
A modification of BME featuring increased amino acid levels to more closely resemble the protein content of human cells. MEM serves as a general used medium ideal for the growth and maintenance of a wide range of mammalian cell types. Often used to support anchorage-dependent cells, however modified solutions can be used to support other cell types including calcium-free MEM for suspension cultures and MEM with Hanks’ salts for diploid cells.
