GlutaMAX™ media—healthier cells live longer

Gibco® GlutaMAX™ media are standard cell culture media that contain a stabilized form of L-glutamine, the dipeptide L-alanyl-L-glutamine, that prevents degradation and ammonia buildup in both adherent and suspension cultures.  Use GlutaMAX™ media to increase media stability, minimize toxic ammonia buildup, and maximize cell performance. Get the most from your cell cultures with GlutaMAX™ media.
