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

cGMP Manufacturing
Gibco® BGJb medium 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.

BME contains no proteins, lipids, or growth factors. Therefore, BME requires supplementation, commonly with 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). BME uses a sodium bicarbonate buffer system (3.5 g/L) and therefore requires a 5-10% CO2 environment to maintain physiological pH.
For Research Use or Further Manufacturing. Not for diagnostic use or direct administration into humans or animals.
