Leibovitz’s L-15 Medium

Leibovitz's L15 medium was designed to grow cells in CO2 environments without using sodium bicarbonate buffer system. The medium is buffered by phosphates and the amino acid L-arginine, along with L-histidine and L-cysteine and high level of galactose and sodium pyruvate. The formation of acid metabolite byproducts is prevented by replacing glucose with galactose and sodium pyruvate. This medium can be used for the propagation of HEP-2, monkey kidney cells and primary explants of embryonic and adult human tissue. Leibovitz's L-15 supports established cell lines as well as primary explants of embryonic and adult human tissue.
