Q:

What is the difference between Lonza’s SkBM™ and SkBM™-2 basal media? Can Lonza’s SkBM™ and SkBM™-2 basal media be used interchangeably?

A:
Lonza’s SkBM™ and SkBM™-2 basal media are identical except for the fact that SkBM™ basal medium has L-glutamine while SkBM™-2 basal medium does not contain L-glutamine (L-glutamine is added to the SkBM™-2 basal medium as part of the SkGM™-2 SingleQuots™ Kit). 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 and so long as the L-glutamine is appropriately accounted for.
