Eagle’s MEM is a powdered medium prepared according to prescription published by Harry Eagle in 1959. Up to now, such media were not autoclavable because of decomposition or deterioration of the constituents, so that sterilization was performed by filtration using a membrane filter.

This medium is specially manufactured so that constituents of the medium and growth of cells with this medium are not impaired.
