Gibco™ BenchStable™ media has been engineered for flexibility and convenience enabling storage at room temperature while maintaining capabilities of supporting cellular proliferation and maximum cell densities comparable to conventional basal media formulations supplemented with ≥ 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS).

DMEM (Dulbecco's Modified Eagle Medium) is a widely used basal medium for supporting the growth of many different mammalian cells. Cells successfully cultured in DMEM include primary fibroblasts, neurons, glial cells, HUVECs, and smooth muscle cells, as well as cell lines such as HeLa, 293, Cos-7, and PC-12. We offer a variety of DMEM modifications for a range of cell culture applications. Find the right formulation using the media selector tool.

Optimized for room temperature stability

Using DMEM
DMEM is unique from other media as it contains 4 times the concentration of amino acids and vitamins than the original Eagle's Minimal Essential Medium. DMEM was originally formulated with low glucose (1 g/L) and sodium pyruvate, but is often used with higher glucose levels, with or without sodium pyruvate. BenchStable™ DMEM with GlutaMAX™ supplement minimizes toxic ammonia build-up and improves cell viability and growth in an easy-to-use format. BenchStable™ DMEM contains no proteins, lipids, or growth factors. Therefore, BenchStable™ DMEM requires supplementation of ≥ 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). BenchStable™ DMEM uses a sodium bicarbonate buffer system (3.7 g/L), and therefore requires a 5 to 10% CO2 environment to maintain physiological pH.

cGMP manufacturing and quality system
Gibco™ BenchStable™ Media is manufactured at a cGMP-compliant facility located in Grand Island, New York. The facility is registered with the FDA as a medical device manufacturer and is certified to ISO 13485 standards.
