Opti-MEM™ I medium is also recommended for use with cationic lipid transfection reagents, such as Lipofectamine™ reagent. Opti-MEM™ I medium can be used with a variety of suspension and adherent mammalian cells, including Sp2, AE-1, CHO, BHK-21, HEK, and primary fibroblasts. We offer a variety of Opti-MEM™ I modifications for a range of cell culture applications.

• Phenol Red

The complete formulation is confidential. For more information, please contact Technical Services.

Using Opti-MEM™ I Medium
Opti-MEM™ I Reduced-Serum Medium is a unique medium that contains insulin, transferrin, hypoxanthine, thymidine, and trace elements. These additional components allow for a reduction in serum supplementation by at least 50%. Opti-MEM™ I medium uses a sodium bicarbonate buffer system (2.4 g/L), and therefore requires a 5–10% CO2 environment to maintain physiological pH.

cGMP manufacturing and quality system
Opti-MEM™ I 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 Opti-MEM™ I product made in our Scotland facility (31985-047). This facility is also registered with the FDA as a medical device manufacturer and certified to the ISO 13485 standard.
