BGJb medium was developed for the growth of fetal rat long bones in a chemically defined medium. BGJb is a medium modified by Sylvia Fitton-Jackson from the original BGJ medium developed by Biggers, Gwatkin, and Judah. BGJb medium creates favorable conditions for growth and calcification of fetal bones.

This BGJb medium is manufactured as follows:
WithWithout
• L-glutamine• HEPES
• Phenol Red 


The complete formulation is available.

Gibco™ BGJb medium contains higher levels of amino acids and glucose, and an increased buffering capacity to improve the conditions for growth and calcification of fetal bone.

Using BGJb medium
BGJb contains no proteins, lipids, or growth factors. Therefore, BGJb requires supplementation, commonly with 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). BGJb uses a sodium bicarbonate buffer system (3.5 g/L) and therefore requires a 5-10% CO2 environment to maintain physiological pH.
