Pantum are ready-to-use growth media which contain purified plasma proteins and lipids, such as serum albumin and cholesterol, specific growth factors, components of soybean extract, an iron transport protein and enriched trace elements. The new formulations result in stable cell growth under defined culture conditions. No addition of serum or growth factors is necessary.
Pantum 386 for epithelial cells
Pantum 386 is a modified formulation of DMEM and specially developed to optimize the growth of epithelial cell lines.
Pantum 586A for adherent cells
Pantum 586A is particularly suited for culture of adherent cells to stimulate their growth. It is a modification of Iscove`s MEM.
Pantum L24 for lymphocytes
Pantum L24 is suited for culture of peripheral blood lymphocytes. Adult lymphocytes lack the ability to proliferate. Therefore, Pantum L24 contains a mitogen (phytohemagglutinin, PHA) specifically acting on the cell cycle. It is a modified formulation of RPMI 1640.
Pantum T64 for tumor cells
Pantum T64 is specially developed for culture of tumor cells to stimulate the growth of this cell type. It is a modification of RPMI 1640.
Neuropan Basal Medium
Neuropan basal medium supports the growth of hippocampus cells and many other neuronal cells of the central nervous system. A feeder layer of astrocytes is not required. Neuropan basal medium does not contain glutamate which should be added for the initial culture (25 μM). Before use, Neuropan basal medium is supplemented with serum or for a serum-free culture with Neuropan 27 or NS21 Supplement.
Neuropan 27 is a concentrate for the serum-free cultivation of neural cells.
To culture neurons in the absence of serum, defined supplements such as B27 are widely used. However, available supplements exhibit some variability in their capability to support neurons in culture. NS21 Supplement is a newly developed serum substitute for neuronal cultures of cells from the central and peripheral nervous system.

Stem cells are non-specialized cells with the ability (potency) to develop into different organo-typic cell types (e. g. heart, nerve, blood, muscle and cartilage cells). Depending on their origin, they are divided into embryonic and adult stem cells.
For the cultivation of embryonic stem cells, PAN-Biotech has developed a complete ready-to-use medium. The medium contains fetal bovine serum.
Stempan DMEMwith L-Glutaminewith 3.7 g/L NaHCO3without LIFwith FBS
Stempan GMEMwith L-Glutaminewith 2.75 g/L NaHCO3without LIFwith FBS
Special Medium for human Mesenchymal Stem Cells without FBS
Based on EMEM, this medium was supplemented with amino acids and vitamins and optimized for an improved growth of fibroblasts. For the cultivation of fibroblasts, this medium has to be supplemented with 10% FBS before use.
