GlutaMAX™ media works better than L-glutamine

GIBCO® GlutaMAX™ media is our standard, trusted cell culture media that also happens to contain a stabilized form of L-glutamine, L-alanyl-L-glutamine, preventing degradation and ammonia build-up even during long-term cultures.  

Extremely stable in aqueous solution, the L-alanyl-L-glutamine dipeptide will not degrade into ammonia during storage or incubation like L-glutamine.

GlutaMAX™ keeps your cells healthier longer!

Choose from a variety of formulations

We offer many widely used formulations in which the GlutaMAX™ dipeptide substitutes for L-glutamine. They include D-MEM, MEM, RPMI, Opti-MEM and others.  You can also purchase the GlutaMAX™ dipeptide as a stand-alone supplement.  Use the 200 mM solution GlutaMAX™-I supplement as a direct substitute for L-glutamine at equimolar concentrations in your current cell culture media formulation.

Note:  This supplement is suitable for mammalian cell cultures.  It is not recommended for insect cell cultures.
