Medium for 3t3 fibroblasts and B16 cells

To make mL DMEM
start with mL water
add: g DMEM*
add: g NaHCO3
add: g HEPES, then pH to 7.2 (initial pH = ~7.1)
add: mL FBS
add: mL anti/anti

bring to final volume, filter sterilize in BSC, refrigerate

  • if using DMEM without pyruvate, add 1 mL Na Pyruvate (100mM) per 100 mL medium
Ingredient supplier cat # 1 L 500 mL 250 mL
DMEM 13.4 6.7 3.35 g
NaHCO3 3.7 1.85 0.925 g
HEPES 1.3 0.65 0.325 g
FBS Krackeler 12103C 100 50 25 mL
anti/anti Fisher SV30079.01 10 5 2.5 mL

Mix DMEM, NaHCO3, HEPES in about 70% of the final volume of dH2O.
Initial pH ~7.5
Adjust pH to 7.2 with HCl (it will rise to 7.3 in the CO2 incubator).
Add appropriate aliquot of FBS and antibiotic/antimycotic.
Bring to final volume.
Filter sterilize in the tissue culture hood.
Store in the refrigerator.
