The complete formulation is available.
DMEM/F-12 is a 1:1 mixture of DMEM and Ham's F-12. This formulation combines DMEM's high concentrations of glucose, amino acids, and vitamins with F-12's wide variety of components. DMEM/F-12 contains no proteins, lipids, or growth factors. Therefore, DMEM/F-12 may require supplementation, commonly with 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). DMEM/F-12 uses a sodium bicarbonate buffer system and therefore requires a 5–10% CO2 environment to maintain physiological pH.
