Overview

EpiCult™ Plus Medium is a serum- and BPE-free culture medium for the expansion of epithelial stem cells from mammary, prostate, and other stratified and pseudostratified epithelial tissues from human, mouse, and rat. Epithelial cells can be expanded in EpiCult™ Plus Medium for multiple passages and for > 30 population doublings; for some human mammary cells, addition of fetal bovine serum may be required.

EpiCult™ Plus Medium is not recommended for human keratinocytes or primary human airway cells; for culturing primary human airway cells, we recommend PneumaCult™-Ex Plus Medium (Catalog #05040).

Note: Hydrocortisone Stock Solution (Catalog #07925) is required for preparation of complete EpiCult™ Plus Medium.
Advantages:
• A serum- and BPE-free cell culture medium that supports increased proliferation of epithelial stem cells compared to conventaional media
• Cells maintain expansion capability beyond 30 population doublings without senescence
• Maintains epithelial stem cells that can differentiate into cell types present in the tissue of origin
• Provides consistent performance between passages and experiments
