More Details about

Cultrex® Human BME *PathClear®

Size: 1 ml

Description: Basement membranes are continuous sheets of specialized extracellular matrix that form an interface between endothelial, epithelial, muscle, or neuronal cells and their adjacent stroma. Basement membranes are degraded and regenerated during development and wound repair. They not only support cells and cell layers, but they also play an essential role in tissue organization that affects cell adhesion, migration, proliferation, and differentiation. Basement membranes provide major barriers to invasion by metastatic tumor cells. Cultrex® Human Basement Membrane Extract (BME) is a soluble form of basement membrane purified from human placenta. BME can be used for promotion and maintenance of an undifferentiated phenotype, or differentiation of precursors, including stem cells, into primary epithelial cells, endothelial cells and smooth muscle cells. It has been employed in cell attachment assays, neurite outgrowth assays, and tumor cell invasion assays.


Concentration: 1 mg/ml

Source: Human Placenta

Storage Buffer: Dulbecco’s Modified Eagle’s medium containing 10 μg/ml gentamycin sulfate and no phenol red.

Storage/Stability: Product is stable for a minimum of 3 months from date of shipment when stored at –80 °C. Repeated freeze-thaws will destroy product integrity.

Material Qualification:

Functional Assay:
· Human BME promotes attachment of human osteosarcoma MG63 cells.

*Sterility Testing:

· No bacterial or fungal growth detected after incubation at 37 °C for 14 days
· No mycoplasma contamination detected by PCR.
· Human BME has tested negative for eight human pathogenic viruses including Hepatitis A, B and C, HIV 1 and 2, Hantaan, Seoul, and Sin Nombre by PCR.
· Endotoxin concentrations ≤ 20 EU/ml by LAL assay.

Safety Statement:

Cultrex® Human BME *PathClear® contains human source material and therefore should be treated as potentially infectious and handled at the Biological Safety Level 2 to minimize exposure.

Coating Procedures:

1. Thaw Human BME at 4oC or on ice.
2. Mix BME by pipetting solution up and down.
3. Dilute BME to desired concentration in cold serum-free medium. Empirical determination of the optimal coating concentration for your application may be required. A protein concentration 150 μg/ml is a recommended starting concentration for the propagation of primary cells.
4. Add a sufficient amount of solution to cover the entire area onto growth surface. A volume of 250 μl per cm2 is recommended.
5. Place coated object at 37 °C, and 5% CO2 for a minimum of 2 hours or as long as overnight.
6. Aspirate coating medium.
7. Coated objects are ready for use.
