Glasgow's Minimum Essential Medium is a modification of Basal Medium Eagle (BME). Ian Macpherson and Michael Stoker added tryptose phosphate broth and twice the concentration of amino acids and vitamins to BME. The medium was originally used to culture BHK-21 clone 13 cells, used for investigating the genetic factors affecting cell competence. This product contains L-glutamine and non-essential amino acids but does not contain Sodium phosphate and tryptose phosphate broth. It is advisable to review the literature for recommendations regarding medium supplementation and physiological growth requirements specific for different cell lines.
