Minimum Essential Medium (MEM)

Minimum Essential Medium (MEM) is one of the most commonly used of all cell culture media. Minimum Essential Medium (MEM) with Earle’s Balanced Salts is a modification of Eagle’s earlier Basal Medium (BME) which contains a higher concentration of essential nutrients.

These media promote the growth of a variety of normal and transformed cells. Since they contain Earle’s Balanced Salts, they are suitable for use in atmospheres charged with CO2.
