Gibco® HAT Supplement is a liquid mixture of sodium hypoxanthine (5 mM), aminopterin (20 µM) and thymidine (0.8 mM). HAT-supplemented medium is suitable for post-fusion selection against unfused or self-fused HGPRT–myeloma cells. Hypoxanthine and thymidine supply preformed purines and pyrimidines for DNA synthesis by hybridomas via the salvage pathway that utilizes HGPRT- contributed by the fused spleen cell. Aminopterin, a folic acid antagonist, inhibits the de novo nucleoside biosynthesis pathway. Product Use For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures. Dual site cGMP Manufac...

ITS-A (Insulin-Transferrin-Selenium-Sodium Pyruvate) Supplement is used as a basal medium supplement in order to reduce the amount of Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS) used to culture cells. ITS-A is used for adherent cell cultures. Originally used with RPMI 1640 and Minimum Essential Medium (MEM), ITS-A is now routinely used with other basal media to support a wide variety of cell types in the presence of 2–4% FBS. Life Technologies also offers ITS-G and ITS-X supplements. Using ITS-A Supplement Insulin promotes glucose and amino acid uptake, lipogenesis, intracellular transport, and the synthesis of ...

Gibco® 2-Mercaptoethanol (also known as beta-mercaptoethanol or BME) is a potent reducing agent used in cell culture medium to prevent toxic levels of oxygen radicals. Mercaptoethanol is not stable in solution so most protocols require daily supplementation. Gibco® 2-Mercaptoethanol is made at 50 mM in Dulbecco's Phosphate Buffered Saline (DPBS). Product Use For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures. cGMP Manufacturing and Quality System Gibco® 2-Mercaptoethanol is manufactured at a cGMP compliant facility, located in Paisley, Scotland, UK. The facility is registered with the...

Sodium pyruvate is commonly added to cell culture media as an energy source in addition to glucose. Since cells make sodium pyruvate as an intermediate metabolite in the glycolysis pathway, it is not a required supplement for all cell cultures. However, if cells have been grown in medium that is supplemented with sodium pyruvate, we recommend continuing use of the supplement as cell growth may lag without it. Gibco® Sodium Pyruvate (100 mM) is formulated using 11 g per liter of water. The final concentration of sodium pyruvate used in most cell culture media is 1 mM. Dual-site cGMP Manufacturi...

Knockout™ Serum Replacement (Knockout™ SR) is a defined, serum-free formulation used to support the growth of undifferentiated ES (Embryonic Stem Cells) and iPS (Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells) in culture. It directly replaces FBS in existing protocols. One of the most important parameters surrounding ES cell culture is the maintenance of ES cells in an undifferentiated state. Until now, FBS was the only option for nutritive supplementation of ES and iPS cell media. Unfortunately, FBS also contains factors which can promote differentiation of ES cells. Thus, each lot must be screened prior to ...
