An improved tissue culture basal medium, CMRL-1969, supplemented with serum, has been evaluated by measuring the growth responses of primary cultures of trypsin-dispersed monkey kidney cells (PMKC) and of an established culture of a human diploid cell strain (HDCS). Medium H597, an early modification of medium 199 which has been used successfully in the preparation of poliomyelitis vaccine for 15 years, was used for comparison. In addition, parallel testing was done with Basal Medium Eagle (BME) widely used for the growth of HDCS. The improvements in basal medium CMRL-1969 are attributed to changes in amino acid concentrations, in vitamin composition, and, in particular, to enhanced buffering capacity. The latter has been achieved by the use of free-base amino acids and by increasing the dibasic sodium phosphate. The new medium has already been used to advantage for the production of polioviruses in PMKC where equivalent titers were obtained from cultures initiated with 70% of the number of cells required with earlier media. The population-doubling time was reduced in this system. Also, with small inocula of HDCS, the time required to obtain maximum cell yield was shorter with CMRL-1969 than with BME. Both media were supplemented with 10% calf serum. Maximum cell yields after repeated subcultivation in the new basal medium were greatly increased and the stability of the strain, as shown by chromosomal analysis, was not affected. Basal medium CMRL-1969 can be prepared easily in liquid or powdered form.
