B-27® Supplement Minus Vitamin A is a customized B-27® Supplement without Vitamin A. Vitamin A (retinol) can be converted to retinoic acid, which can induce neuronal differentiation. The absence of vitamin A makes this formulation ideal for use in the culture of stem cells.

B-27® Supplement Minus Vitamin A is provided as a 50X liquid and is intended to be used with Neurobasal® Medium or Neurobasal®-A Medium for neuronal cell culture without the need for an astrocyte feeder layer.

For other applications, we provide alternative formulations of B-27® Supplement.

Quality Control Testing
B-27® Supplement is tested in a growth assay utilizing primary rat (Sprague Dawley) embryonic hippocampal neurons, 18 day gestation. Additional standard evaluations are for the absence of bacterial and fungal contaminants. B-27® is also tested for endotoxin at a 1X concentration.
