abm’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 X.1 is a specialized media formulated for corneal progenitor cells, epithelial cells and keratinocytes derived from cornea. The PriGrow X.1 Medium has 2 components, a basal medium and a separate growth supplement vial. Prigrow X.1 contains BPE and 0.07mM calcium.
