OncoMiD® culture media

OncoMiD® culture media

Unique series of optimised media for the culture of primary breast, colon and ovarian cells



The specific transport media of the OncoMiD-Via® series have been specially developed to safely transport fresh tumor samples. It is crucial to maintain excellent viability of the cells contained in tumor samples during transport from the health care facility to the laboratory. To this end, Oncomedics has developed a series of cell type specific transport media that allow primary human tumor cells to remain viable for up to 48 hours post-surgery. OncoMiD-Via® media have been validated for the transport of breast, colon/rectum and ovarian tumors.
The OncoMiD-Diss® dissociation media series is specifically optimised for dissociating human tumor samples. It allows the dissociation of tumor samples into individual cells, thus facilitating their entry into primary culture. Four tubes containing different products are required to initiate, control and stop tumour dissociation, combined with specific procedures for each cell type. The specific OncoMiD-Diss® media have been developed for the dissociation of tumors from breast, colon/rectum and ovary.
The OncoMiD® series of culture media have been optimised to allow the preservation of dissociated tumor cells from human samples in primary culture. With a known and standardised composition, and not containing foetal calf serum, they have been formulated specifically for the ex vivo culture of tumor cells from human cancer samples. They allow the selection of cells of tumor epithelial origin over cells of the microenvironment and are suitable for all tumor subtypes. OncoMiD® specific media have been developed for tumor culture from breast, colon/rectum and ovary.
The OncoMiD® defined culture media have been optimised in order to obtain, one week after dissociation and for all cancer subtypes of the pathology to be treated, a purified primary culture of tumor cells. During these 7 days, the high cell death observed reflects the selective elimination of cells from the microenvironment. The procedure is optimal when all media OncoMiD-Via® (ref. OMVIA1/2/3), OncoMiD-Diss® (ref. OMDIS1/2/3) and OncoMid® (ref. OMCULT1/2/3) are combined.
