USE FOR: Solid tumor types, including breast, lung, colon, and ovarian.


Specifically formulated for extended culture of primary tumors, Renaissance media utilizes a simple, feeder-free protocol for multiple solid tumor types, including breast, lung, colon, and ovarian. Using our approach, researchers have achieved high success rates in establishing extended cultures of tumor cells —a success rate many times higher than in tumors cultured in traditional media.

  • Less variation, better resultsRenaissance Media produces cultures with less variability and more reproducible results.
  • Simple feeder-free protocolNo feeder cells or genetic manipulation of the cells is required.
  • Unsurpassed stabilityPrimary tumors grown in Renaissance are stable past 15 population doublings.
  • Enhanced predictabilityStable genotype and growth rate for predictable cell expansion.

USE FOR: Human mammary epithelial cells and human fallopian tissue.



WIT media have been optimized for the expansion of normal human mammary epithelial cells and have been adapted for the culture of  human fallopian tissue and several additional applications (see media compare chart). Completely defined and serum-free, WIT media support expansion over 20 passages—without the growth arrest seen in other normal primary culture media.



  • Broad usageWIT has been used for a wide breadth of applications by scientists, including growth of human lymphoma and mouse tumor tissue
  • More effective cultivationUse of WIT simplifies primary cell culture and enables normal cells to thrive.
  • User-friendlyEasy-to-use and formulation is both serum-free and fully defined.
  • Reflective of tissue phenotypeCells grown in WIT exhibit a more luminal pattern than in other media.
