RPMI 1640 Medium was developed for culturing human leukocytes and other blood cells. It contains several additional components when compared to MEM and DMEM. RPMI 1640 is now used for a range of mammalian cells in suspension and monolayer culture. Atlanta Biologicals manufactures this enriched medium with or without L-glutamine with a stable L-glutamine substitute, with or without HEPES.
