CMRL-1066 is a chemically defined medium developed in the late 1960's at the Connaugh Medical Research Laboratories. CMRL-1066 was designed initially for use with mouse L-cells in non-supplemented culture. Although developed for use in serum-free culture, CMRL-1066 can be supplemented with serum and used to support the growth of many cell types. Suitable for growing a wide variety of cell types, especially fibroblast-like cells.

Directions per Liter: Dissolve 9.82g in 800-900ml of ddH2O stirring gently until completely solubilized. Add 2.2g sodium bicarbonate while stirring. Adjust pH of the medium to 0.1-0.3 pH unit below the desired level. Add additional water to bring the solution to 1L Filter-sterilize using a 0.22 micron membrane filter. Aliquot into sterile containers. Do not autoclave. Contains heat-labile compounds that can be damaged with autoclaving.

Storage and Stability: Store powdered media at RT. Opened bottles should be capped tightly and kept in a dark, low humidity environment. Prepared media should be kept at 4°C and used within a short period of time.

Appearance: Orange, homogeneous, free flowing powder

Solubility: Yellow, clear, complete

pH: As reported

Endotoxin: 1EU/ml
