UltraMEM Reduced Serum Medium is a chemically-defined medium designed to support growth and maintenance of several anchorage-dependent cell types under reduced serum concentrations. When supplemented with 2-4% serum, UltraMEM Medium growth performance is comparable and, in some instances, superior to that of standard media supplemented with 10% fetal bovine serum.

Growth performance in UltraMEM can be further increased by addition of insulin, transferrin, selenium, and ethanolamine [ITS or ITES] to the basal medium.
