Q: Why was Plasmax developed?
Dr. Saverio Tardito from the Cancer Research UK Beatson Institute needed a cell culture media that better reflected human physiological conditions. Discover the story of how he created Plasmax:Read more
Q: How does Plasmax differ from DMEM/ F12/ RPMI?
Unlike traditional media, which focusses on the rapid growth of cultured cells, Plasmax was developed to mimic the in vivo environment. Plasmax contains over 80 optimised components, with over 50 at levels found within human plasma.Read more
Q: Can Plasmax be used like a growth focussed media (e.g. DMEM)?
Q: How does Plasmax affect the metabolic profile of your cultured cells?
Q: What is the role of trace elements in Plasmax?
Q: Which cells can Plasmax be used to culture?
Q: Can Plasmax be supplemented with antibiotics?
Q: Can I use Plasmax alone or is it good to add FBS?
Plasmax does not contain any proteins, growth factors or lipid therefore FBS should be added at the concentration you consider most appropriate.Read more
