Media is the foundation of any neural cell culture experiment.  Having confidence in your media means confidence in your results.  For over 20 years researchers have been trusting and publishing their experiments using Neurobasal® media.

Neurobasal® Media are basal media formulated to meet the neuronal cell’s special requirements. When supplemented with B-27® Supplements (N-2 Supplement or G-5 Supplement), Neurobasal® medium allows for long-term maintenance of the normal phenotype and growth of neuronal cells, and maintain pure populations of neuronal cells without the need for an astrocyte feeder layer.

All Gibco® neural cell culture reagents are optimized to work together as a complete media system.

Introducing Neurobasal®-A Minus D-glucose and Sodium Pyruvate, the complete Neurobasal®-A Medium without D-glucose and Sodium Pyruvate, suitable for supporting post-natal neurons in glucose response or insulin receptor studies. Learn more >>
