Eagle’s Minimum Essential Medium (MEM), a modification of Eagle’s BME, is one of the most commonly used cell culture media. MEM is suitable for a broad spectrum of mammalian cells in culture. In comparison with BME, it contains higher concentrations of amino acids and other essential nutrients. Atlanta Biologicals offers a variety of MEM versions that are available with Earle’s salts for use in a CO2 incubator, with Hanks’ salts for use without CO2, with or without non-essential amino acids, or as Alpha modification with or without nucleosides.
