CMRL medium was originally developed by Connaught Medical Research Laboratories for the growth of Earle's 'L'cells under serum-free conditions. CMRL medium is also especially useful for cloning monkey kidney cells and for growth of many other mammalian cell lines when supplemented with horse or calf serum.
This CMRL medium is manufactured as follows:
|• Phenol Red||• L-glutamine|

Gibco™ CMRL medium is manufactured at a cGMP compliant facility, located in Grand Island, New York. The facility is registered with the FDA as a medical device manufacturer and is certified to ISO 13485 standards. For supply chain continuity, we offer an identical Gibco™ CMRL medium product made in our Scotland facility (21530-027). This facility is registered with the FDA as a medical device manufacturer and is certified to the ISO 13485 standard.
CMRL medium contains no proteins or growth factors. Therefore, CMRL medium requires supplementation, commonly with 10% Fetal Bovine Serum
(FBS). CMRL medium uses a sodium bicarbonate buffer system (2.2 g/L) and therefore requires a 5-10% CO2
environment to maintain physiological pH.
