Cell culture media - Plasmax

Plasmax is a new physiologically relevant cell culture medium to study cancer biology. It is a human plasma like medium that is designed to improve the metabolic fidelity and biological relevance of in vitro cancer models.

Q: What is Plasmax?

Plasmax is a cell culture medium that closely mimics the metabolic and physiological profile of human plasma. It is a chemically defined and ready-to-use medium, painstakingly developed to give the best possible representation of in vivo conditions.
