Q:

What is the difference between the EBM™ and EBM™-2 Basal Media? Can the EBM™-2 Basal Media be substituted with the EBM™ phenol red free Basal Media?

A:
The EBM™ and EBM™-2 Basal Media are essentially identical. The major difference between the EBM™ and EBM™-2 Basal Media is the concentration of phenol red (the EBM™-2 Basal Media has about 1/10th the amount of phenol red as the EBM™ Basal Media). The two basal media can be used interchangeably so long as the appropriate SingleQuot™ Kit supplements are added depending on the specific cell type being cultured. Additionally, both the EBM™ and EBM™-2 Basal Media can be substituted with the EBM™ Phenol Red free Basal Media if a phenol red free media is required (additionan of appropriate SingleQuot™ Kit supplements would still be required).
