Product Use
For Research Use Only: Not intended for animal or human diagnostic or therapeutic use.

cGMP Manufacturing
Gibco® MEM is manufactured at a cGMP compliant facility located in Grand Island, New York. The facility is registered with the FDA as a medical device manufacturer and is certified to ISO 13485 standards.

Gibco® MEM contains no proteins, lipids, or growth factors. Therefore, MEM requires supplementation, commonly with 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). MEM uses a sodium bicarbonate buffer system (2.2 g/L) and therefore requires a 5-10% CO2 environment to maintain physiological pH.
For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
