Liebovitz (L-15 Medium)
This media supports cell lines such as HEp-2 and MMC-MK2 and primary explants of embryonic and adult human tissue. L-15 Medium (Leibovitz) was originally formulated for use in carbon dioxide free systems requiring sodium bicarbonate supplementation. L-15 is buffered by its complement of salts, free base amino acids and galactose (in place of glucose). Many viruses have been successfully cultivated in this medium.
