BPE continues to be the most successful bovine derived extract to date and has allowed cell culture scientists to investigate and study normal primary cell types, including stem cells, non-fibroblast cells, and epithelial cells in proliferating cultures. BPE is a highly concentrated source of putative mitogens and growth factors beneficial for serum- free or low- serum containing media. J R Scientific’s (JRS) method of preparation is based on the original formulation determined in Dr. Richard Ham’s laboratory. Our product is prepared in normal saline and formulated to contain up to 20 mg/mL active protein. Growth tests performed on human mammary epithelial cells, epidermal keratinocytes, prostatic and bronchial epithelial cells indicate an optimum concentration range of 25-50 ug/ml depending on objectives. JRS recommends utilization of a growth assay to determine optimal concentration in your cell culture system.
