How long does cell culture media last?

In general, cell culture media lasts for 3-4 weeks once it has been opened and supplemented, though this will vary across cell culture media and the rate of usage – PlasmaxTM, for example, lasts for 6 weeks once it has been opened. You should receive instructions on storage and shelf life with your cell culture media order, however databases such as ATCC also have information on shelf life and storage, in the unlikely event you can’t find the relevant information on the manufacturer’s website.
