Quality and performance testing
Every lot of Gibco™ AmnioMAX™ C-100 Complete Medium is performance tested by a certified US reference cytogenetics laboratory to ensure consistently superior performance. Pooled primary human amniotic fluid samples are cultured for six days in Gibco™ AmnioMAX™ C-100 Complete Medium before measuring the total number of colonies and total number of mitotic colonies. In addition, each lot is tested for pH and osmolality and must pass a sterility test prior to lot release.
Unique, optimized formulation
Gibco™ AmnioMAX™ C-100 Complete Medium contains Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS), gentamicin, and L-glutamine to maximize cell attachment and growth. This optimized medium also has an enhanced buffering system that provides greater pH stability during culture manipulations.
