Minimum Essential Media

Minimum Essential Medium (MEM) is modification of Basal Medium Eagle (BME) to meet specific nutritional requirements of normal mammalian fibroblasts and certain subtypes of HeLa cells. MEM contains higher concentrations of amino acids to more closely approximate the protein composition of mammalian cells and when supplemented with serum, MEM can be used to cultivate wide variety of cells grown in monolayers, such as fibroblasts. Further modification by removing calcium chloride (Joklin Modification) is used for suspension cell cultures.
