Eagle’s minimal essential medium (EMEM) is a cell culture medium developed by Harry Eagle that can be used to maintain cells in tissue culture.
Basal medium with different variations.
MEM was developed by Dr. Harry Eagle to overcome problems encountered when attempting to grow normal fibroblasts and certain sub-types of HeLa cells. Many other modification of MEM followed including alpha- MEM and DMEM. MEM Spinner was developed when calcium component was removed from the MEM medium, and resulted in a medium that supports the growth of cells in suspension.
EMEM (Eagle’s Minimum Essential Medium) has a higher amino acid concentration and 2 to 5 times greater vitamin concentration than BME, permitting longer periods between feedings.
