Technical Data
Epithelial (Human Breast) Serum Free Media (BRFF BMZERO)
Cell Culture Grade
Storage -70C    Shipping Dry Ice

BRFF-BMZERO is a complete serum-free medium designed to grow human breast cells. This SFM was originally used for establishing new epithelial cell lines from explants of human breast tissue and to grow immortalized normal breast cell lines. This medium is a good first choice when switching from serum containing medium to serum free or for the cultivation of primary cultures. For optimum cell attachment, use FNC Coating Mix.

Ready-to-use with all necessary growth factors. Antibiotic-free.
