Endothelial Cell Growth Medium 2 is a low-serum (2% V/V) medium that lacks Endothelial Cell Growth Supplement (ECGS, bovine hypothalamic extract) but contains Insulin-like Growth Factor (Long R3 IGF) and Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF). Generally, VEGF leads to higher endothelial cell proliferation in culture. But, because of its multiple effects on cell metabolism, it may also interfere with certain experimental setups. In these cases, we recommend the use of Endothelial Cell Growth Medium, which contains no VEGF.

Although all PromoCell media are optimized for use with primary human cells, we have received feedback from customers that this particular medium can also be used for bovine, porcine, murine, caprine, rabbit, elephant, dog, and rat endothelial cells from large vessels as well as for various endothelial cell lines.
