    VL6 is a complex medium for cultivation of Discoideum dictyostelium based on Vegetable Peptone.Formedium Ltd have recognised the need for a range of meat-free products. This has led to the development of VL6, an animal component free alternative medium compared to traditional Dicty media such as HL5 and HL5C.VL6 is composed of a Vegetable peptone providing high molecular weight peptides and proteins as a nitrogen source.  Yeast Extract is a source of vitamins, co-factors and carbohydrates. A Phosphate buffer is present to inhibit acidification of the medium during cell growth.As most vegetable peptones contain almost no Tryptophane VL6 is supplemented with an extra quantity of this amino acid and some other amino acids. Essential trace elements and vitamins as present in FM and SIH media are added for those Dicty cultures needing additional nutritionals for starting up vigorous growth or protein synthesis.

    Casamino Acids are manufactured by a controlled acid hydrolysis of casein . Hydrolysis is not completed until all the nitrogen in the casein is converted to amino acids or other compounds of relative chemical simplicity. As a result of the acid hydrolysis process all vitamins and growth factors present in casein are destroyed.Due to the low sodium chloride concentration Formedium™Casamino Acids are well suited for cultivation of yeast cells.Store dry at room temperature
