Superior performance Gibco® MarrowMAX™ Bone Marrow Medium outperforms other commercially available media containing Giant Cell Tumor (GCT) conditioned media, providing consistent performance with a higher mitotic index and superior chromosomal morphology (learn more about the superior performance of MarrowMAX™ medium here).
Ready-to-use format Gibco® MarrowMAX™ Bone Marrow Medium is a frozen, 1X medium, ready to use upon thawing. No supplementation is required. Thawed medium can be stored at 2–8°C for up to 60 days.
Quality and performance testing Every lot of Gibco® MarrowMAX™ Bone Marrow Medium is performance tested by a certified US reference cytogenetics laboratory to ensure consistently superior performance. Bone marrow cells from the aspirate of a normal adult donor are cultured for 24 hours in Gibco® MarrowMAX™ Bone Marrow Medium before measuring the mitotic index and chromosome banding resolution. In addition, each lot is tested for sterility, pH, osmolality, mycoplasma and endotoxin.
Unique, optimized formulation Gibco® MarrowMAX™ Bone Marrow Medium is an optimized RPMI 1640 medium, supplemented with Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS), gentamicin, and L-glutamine. It also contains a novel human stromal cell conditioned medium that consists of a unique blend of hematopoietic growth factors. Gibco® MarrowMAX™ Bone Marrow Medium does not contain GCT conditioned medium.
