EpiCult™

Serum-Free, Defined Media for Mammary Epithelial Cell Culture

EpiCult™ is a line of serum-free, defined culture media that supports mammary epithelial monolayer culture and assays for detecting the presence of mammary precursor cells in mammary colony-forming units (Ma-CFUs) or 3D Matrigel®-based cultures. For researchers interested in culturing mammospheres or tumorspheres derived from breast cancer cell lines, visit our MammoCult™ page to learn about the most published commercially available medium that has been designed and optimized for this purpose.

EpiCult™-C: Culture Human Mammary Epithelial Cells

EpiCult™-C Medium is optimized to support the short term culture of human mammary luminal epithelial and myoepithelial cells. It can also be used for the enzymatic dissociation of human mammary tissue when supplemented with Collagenase/Hyaluronidase. Watch this video to learn more.

EpiCult™-B: Detect Human or Mouse Mammary Colony-Forming Units (Ma-CFUs)

EpiCult™-B has species-specific formulations for the culture and assay of either human or mouse mammary cells. Detect the presence of mammary precursor cells in Ma-CFUs for quantification, or in 3D Matrigel®-based cultures for an environment that is representative of the in vivo mammary duct structure.
