All lots of PromoCell Renal Epithelial Cell Media are subjected to comprehensive quality control tests using primary human renal epithelial cells. Each lot is checked for growth promoting activity, adherence rate, and typical morphology of the tested renal epithelial cells. Approved in-house lots of media are used as a reference. In addition, all lots of media have been tested for the absence of microbial contaminants (fungi, bacteria, mycoplasma).
