Product Intended Use
For in vitro diagnostic use. CAUTION: Not for human or animal therapeutic use. Uses other than the intended use may be a violation of local law.

cGMP Manufacturing and Quality System
Gibco® IMDM 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. For supply chain continuity, we offer an identical Gibco® IMDM product made in our Scotland facility (42200-030). This facility is registered with the FDA as a medical device manufacturer and is certified to the ISO 13485 standard.

IMDM contains no proteins, lipids, or growth factors. Therefore, IMDM requires supplementation, commonly with 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). IMDM uses a sodium bicarbonate buffer system (3.024 g/L), and therefore requires a 5-10% CO2 environment to maintain physiological pH.

Powder forms of Gibco® cell culture medium require sodium bicarbonate supplementation, pH adjustment, and filtration at the time of preparation (see protocol for details).
For Research Use or Further Manufacturing. Not for diagnostic use or direct administration into humans or animals.
