Serum substitute for chondrocyte culture

Hallo netters.

I am trying to eliminate FCS and other animal/human sera from my
chondrocytes cultures.

Then I am actually evaluating various vendors which sell serum
substitutes or even serum-free media.

Unfortunately, none of them has a specific formulation for chondrocytes
(and I did expect so). The question is has anyone heard or experienced
a  similar problem and has hints for me?

Plus, I would like also to eliminate P/S antibiotic with gentamicin, but
what is the best concentration for the latter?

Thank you in advance.
