Prigrow I Medium



Descriptionabm’s PriGrow Media Series for mammalian cell culture is composed of high-quality, specific formulations for the optimal growth of different types of primary cells.

PriGrow media is offered as a basal, serum and antibiotic-free formula to provide the end user with the flexibility of further supplement and serum addition if required. Each lot has been fully tested and optimized for the ability to support the growth of the intended primary cells, in addition to being QC tested for sterility, pH, osmolality and endotoxin levels.

Special media modification is available as a Custom Media Service, please contact a technical representative at [email protected] for more details.

Supporting Protocol



      Which is the buffer hepes, bicarbonate and any detailed information you can share with us about the formulation of the Prigrow media. Which is the difference between different types of Prigrow?
      The Prigrow Series are basal media formulated to suit the needs of our specialized cell lines. The proportion of bicarbonate and HEPES buffers, nutrients, additives and basal supplements in each Prigrow is different, depending on the needs of the cell lines the media was optimized for.
      What is the difference between PriGrow I, II, III or IV?
      Each medium is optimized with our proprietary formulation to support the proliferation and growth for different cell types.
      Do we need anti-biotics in the media?
      ABM's PriGrow consists of basal medium only. In order to make it into complete media, usually one needs to add 10% FBS as well as antibiotics, if desired. To answer the question, yes you will need to add your own antibiotics or antifungal solution.
      What is the color of the PriGrow media?
      All of ABM's PriGrow media are red, as they contain Phenol Red Indicator.
      For the PriGrow Series, are they serum free media?
      Yes, PriGrow Series are provided as serum free media. The end user has to add FBS to make the media complete.
      Is a free sample for the media available?
      Unfortunately we do not offer free samples for this product.
      I would like to purchase a compatable media to PriGrow, could you please recommend one?
      We have optimized our media composition to provide the best growth conditions for the cell types it supports. We do not carry out testing of other products to be able to suggest alternatives that can perform to the same standards.
      Can this media be frozen and thawed?
      Freezing the media may compromise the quality of the product, therefore we advise only to store at 2-8°C
      Does Prigrow I contain glucose?
      Yes, TM001 contains 0.86 g/L glucose
      Does Prigrow I media contain any ammonium trioxovandate?
      Yes, Prigrow I will contain ammonium trioxovandate (<0.01%).
