Basal Medium Eagle (BME), developed by Harry Eagle, is a widely used synthetic cell culture media. In the 1950s it was found that mammalian cells do not only need the 10 essential amino acids, but also cystine, tyrosine and glutamine. In addition to these three amino acids, BME includes also eight B-vitamins. BME was originally used for the cultivation of murine L-cells and HeLa cells. Along with the cultivation of normal mammalian cells BME is very suitable for transformed cells. BME is the precursor to other common media such as MEM, DMEM, and Glasgow's Medium.
