RPMI-1640 was developed in 1966 by Moore and his co-workers at Roswell Park Memorial Institute (hence the acronym RPMI). It is based on the RMPI-1630 series of media utilizing a bicarbonate buffering system and alterations in the amounts of amino acids and vitamins. While it was originally formulated to support lymphoblastoid is suspension culture, it has been proven to support a wide variety of anchorage-dependent cells. It has a wide range of uses, including the culture of fresh human lymphocytes, fusion protocols, and in the growth of hybrid cells.
Store the basal medium at 2-8°C. Store cell growth supplement, fetal bovine serum (FBS) and antibiotics at -20°C. The complete cell culture medium with Supplement Kit can be kept in 4°C for two months. Protect from light.
To assure sterility, the prepared medium should be filtered with a 0.2 um filter after 2 weeks or if there is concern that sterility was compromised during the supplementation process.
