Supporting Protocol





          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 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.
          Is a free sample for the media available?
          Unfortunately we do not offer free samples for this product.
          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.
          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 IV contain glucose?
          Yes, TM004 contains 3.15mg/L glucose.
          Do you supply media without phenol red?
          We do provide Prigrow media without phenol red upon request. Please e-mail [email protected] to request a quote.
