MCDB 131 was developed by Knedler and Ham as a reduced serum-supplemented medium for the culture of human microvascular endothelial cells. This formulation has been reported to support clonal growth of human omental microvascular cells when supplemented with 0.7% dialyzed FBS, 10ng/mL EGF, and 1ug/mL hydrocortisone.


Directions per Liter: Dissolve 11.27g in 800-900ml of ddH2O, stirring gently until completely solubilized. Add 1.2g sodium bicarbonate with 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: Pale orange to orange, homogeneous, free-flowing powder.

Solubility: Pink to orange, clear, complete

pH: As reported

Endotoxin: ~10Eu/mg
