GlutaMAX™ Media & Supplement
A superior replacement for L-glutamine
GlutaMAX™ media works better than L-glutamine
GIBCO® GlutaMAX™ media is our standard trusted cell culture media but it contains a stabilized form dipeptide from L-glutamine, L-alanyl-L-glutamine, that prevents 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 in 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.
