Neurobasal™-A Medium (1X) liquid

Contains no glucose or sodium pyruvate.

Neurobasal™ Media are basal media formulated to meet the neuronal cells special requirements. They allow for long-term maintenance of the normal phenotype and growth of neuronal cells, and maintain pure populations of neuronal cells without the need of an astrocyte feeder layer. The concentration of NaCl is adjusted to bring the Osmolality to 260 +/- 10 mOsm
