Advanced Dulbecco′s Modified Eagle′s Medium (A-DMEM)

Advanced Dulbecco′s Modified Eagle′s Medium (A-DMEM)


Advanced Dulbecco′s Modified Eagle′s Medium (A-DMEM) needs 2-5% FBS and provides more consistency.


Advanced Dulbecco′s Modified Eagle′s Medium (A-DMEM)


PurMaTM Advanced Dulbecco′s Modified Eagle′s Medium (A-DMEM) contains components that allow for a 60–90% reduction in FBS supplementation. More importantly, using synthetic components such as recombinant insulin, albumin, and transferrin increase consistency. This results in less variation amongst lot-to-lot serum changes.  In Advanced DMEM, L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine is used as the source of glutamine.  Additionally, reducing FBS requirements lowers the cost of cell culture experiments.

A-DMEM Contains:

  • Advanced Dulbecco′s Modified Eagle′s Medium (A-DMEM) contains all the twenty essential and non-essential amino acids with higher concentrations than regular and MAX formulations.
  • It includes the elements which significantly reduce the need for a serum for cell culture.

Crucial Ingredients:

  • PurMaTM Human Transferrin (Holo): prevents improper iron storage and delivery in cell culture systems which is a major contributor to oxidative stress and protein damage.
  • PurMaTM Insulin Recombinant
  • Trace of other elements which mimic the elements in fetal bovine serum.

Additionally, A-DMEM is a significant step toward a chemically defined form of this media. Undoubtedly, Chemically Defined DMEM (CD-DMEM) is the outcome of decades of cutting-edge research. CD-DMEM will soon be offered globally to laboratories who are looking for consistency and repeatability among their data.
