Kidney Epith.
Tissue Origin:
Cell Characteristics:

Recommended Media

Pro293 Chemically Defined, Serum-free Media were optimized to support high-density growth and recombinant protein production in 293 human kidney cells. They are chemically defined to ease regulatory compliance and downstream protein purification. They contain very low levels of recombinant human insulin, and are free of animal-origin components.

Pro293s Medium - for 293 cells growing in suspension culture
Pro293a Medium - for 293 cells growing in adherent culture

Storage = 2°C to 8°C
