Basal Medium for the growth of epithelial cells other than keratinocytes. When supplemented with growth factors or fetal calf serum (0.2-2.0% dialyzed), WAJC 404 is selective for endothelial calls and detrimental to mesenchymal cells.


Directions per Liter: Dissolve 17.60g 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: Off-white to pale orange, homogenous, free-flowing powder

Solubility: Light amber to yellow, clear, complete

pH: 6.6±0.4
