Basal Medium is a combination of essential nutrients in appropriate concentrations for monolayer cultivation of a wide variety of normal and transformed cells, developed by Harry Eagle. The medium was initially developed as a result of studies to determine the nutritional requirements of HeLa cells and mouse fibroblast L cells in culture. This medium contains Earle's balanced salts and is modified for autoclaving. Autoclavable media offer a convenient alternative to membrane sterilized liquid medium. It is modified to include heat stable components to ensure that product efficacy is maintained after autoclaving. L-glutamine is heat labile, hence has been omitted from the formulation. Users are advised to review the literature for recommendations regarding medium supplementation and physiological growth requirements specific for different cell lines.
