In October 2012, Corning acquired the majority of the Becton Dickinson Discovery Labware business. In 2015, the integration of the Biologics portion of the Discovery Labware brands (including Matrigel™, BioCoat™, FluoroBlok™ and PureCoat™) into their growing family of Corning Life Sciences brands will be complete. You will notice changes on their product and packaging artwork, but the products themselves and the catalog numbers will remain the same.



Interactions between components of the extracellular matrix and growth factors play a crucial role in determining the adaptation and responses of mammalian cells to their micro environments both in vivo and in vitro.

  • Smooth muscle cells cultured in this environment are characterized by a low proliferative index and multilayered nodular morphology
  • Additional characteristics include expression of the cytoskeletal proteins α-smooth muscle actin, heavy-chain myosin and 150kD h-caldesmon
  • Consists of MCDB 131 Medium with BD ITS+™ Universal Culture Supplement with insulin, transferrin, selenous acid, linoleic acid and bovine serum albumin
  • Cells can be subcultured according to routine procedures, seeded into fermentation systems, or used in a variety of bioassays
  • Integrate specially formulated low-serum or serum-free medium, culture supplements and growth factors
  • Each environment lot is tested in a bioassay and all components are tested for bacteria and fungi
