Ham's Nutrient Mixtures

Ham's nutrient mixtures are a group of cell culture media. These media are designed to provide a minimal nutrient environment to support the growth of various types of cells. Ham's nutrient mixtures are particularly useful for cells that require low nutrient concentrations or for cells that are sensitive to high nutrient concentrations. They are also suitable for cells that require special culture conditions, such as cells from specific organs or embryonic cells.

Ham's Nutrient Mixtures

Creative Bioarray's Ham's nutrient mixtures include Ham's F-10 and Ham's F-12. These media contain a mixture of inorganic salts, amino acids, vitamins, and carbohydrates and are often supplemented with fetal bovine serum (FBS) or other supplements to provide additional nutrients and growth factors for cells. Ham's F-10 is often used to grow adherent cells, including fibroblasts and normal epithelial cells. , immortalized cell lines, and tumor cells. Our Ham's nutrient mixtures provide a highly nutritious and supportive environment for cell growth and division, and can be tailored to the specific needs of different cell types.

Our HNMs have many applications in cell culture research, including:

  • Virology: Our Ham's nutrient mixtures are used extensively in virology research for culturing viruses that require host cells for replication. By providing a suitable environment for host cells, Ham's nutrient mixtures can support the growth of a range of viruses, including adenoviruses, herpesviruses, and retroviruses.
  • Toxicology: Our Ham's nutrient mixtures are often used as controls for toxicity testing of drugs and chemicals. By comparing the response of cells cultured in Ham's nutrient mixtures to cells exposed to a drug or chemical, you can determine the potential toxicity of the substance.
  • Cancer research: Our Ham's nutrient mixtures are commonly used in cancer research to culture tumor cells and test new cancer treatments. By culturing cancer cells in the lab, you can better understand the behavior of these cells and test the effectiveness of different treatments.
