HepaRG™ Serum-free Induction Medium Supplement is a specialized media supplement for use in culturing HepaRG™ cells. HepaRG™ Serum-free Induction Medium Supplement is specifically used for induction of metabolic activity in HepaRG™ cells in a serum free environment.
• Easy media preparation, just thaw, mix, and use
• Reproducible, and biologically relevant results with HepaRG™ cells

Media Preparation
Working media is prepared by the addition of thawed HepaRG™ Serum-free Induction Medium Supplement to 100 ml of William’s Medium E (A1217601 or 12551032) and 1 ml of GlutaMAX™-I (35050061). The simple two-step process helps reduce contamination opportunities.

Simplified, Relevant and Reproducible Studies
HepaRG™ cells exhibit many characteristics of primary human hepatocytes and are essentially a single donor. These features allow users to obtain physiological relevant results for metabolism-based drug-drug interactions without the concern of donor variability and limited lot sizes that come with relying on donor tissue. (Note: The cells we provide are terminally differentiated).
