Recommended Media

UltraDOMA-PF Protein-free Hydridoma Media are formulations designed for use with hybridoma cell lines of murine, human, and chimeric origin. UltraDOMA-PF Media are completely defined media and do not contain peptides or tissue extracts.
The use of UltraDOMA-PF Media significantly simplifies downstream processing since all proteins present in a given cell culture supernatant are produced by the cells. 

L-glutamine and HEPES buffer are included in the formulation.

Storage = 2ºC  to 8ºC
