What is the purpose of sodium pyruvate in media?

Product FAQ

Answer

Sodium pyruvate serves as an additional energy source for cells in culture. It is often added to low-glucose formulations (1.0 g/L glucose) and is sometimes added to higher-glucose formulations as well. Cells can become “hooked” on sodium pyruvate however, and if it is withdrawn suddenly from the media, they may experience a short lag in growth.
