Neurobasal Medium, minus phenol red is a basal medium designed for long-term maintenance and maturation of pure pre-natal and embryonic neurons without the need for an astrocyte feeder layer when used with Gibco B-27 supplements. Use this modified formulation of Neurobasal Medium when the presence of phenol red will interfere with your results.

Neurobasal Medium is suitable for use in most neuronal cell applications. For other applications, we provide alternative formulations of Neurobasal media and B-27 supplements.

For established protocols using Neurobasal media, access our Gibco Neurobiology Protocol Handbook.
