RPMI 1640 Medium (Roswell Park Memorial Institute 1640 Medium) was originally developed to culture human leukemic cells in suspension and as a monolayer. RPMI 1640 medium has since been found suitable for a variety of mammalian cells, including HeLa, Jurkat, MCF-7, PC12, PBMC, astrocytes, and carcinomas. We offer a variety of RPMI 1640 modifications for a range of cell culture applications. Find the right formulation using the media selector tool.

This RPMI 1640 is modified as follows:
WithWithout
• GlutaMAX™• HEPES
• Phenol Red

The complete formulation is available.

Using RPMI 1640 Medium
RPMI 1640 medium is unique from other media because it contains the reducing agent glutathione and high concentrations of vitamins. RPMI 1640 medium contains biotin, vitamin B12, and PABA, which are not found in Eagle's Minimal Essential Medium or Dulbecco's Modified Eagle Medium. In addition, the vitamins inositol and choline are present in very high concentrations. RPMI 1640 medium with GlutaMAX™ supplement minimizes toxic ammonia build-up and improves cell viability and growth in an easy-to-use format. RPMI 1640 medium contains no proteins, lipids, or growth factors. Therefore, RPMI 1640 medium requires supplementation, commonly with 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). RPMI 1640 medium uses a sodium bicarbonate buffer system (2.0 g/L) and therefore requires a 5–10% CO2 environment to maintain physiological pH.

cGMP manufacturing and quality system
RPMI 1640 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.

This facility is also registered with the FDA as a medical device manufacturer and certified to the ISO 13485 standard.
