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

cGMP Manufacturing and Quality System
Gibco® DMEM/F-12 is manufactured at a cGMP compliant facility, located in Paisley, Scotland, UK. The facility is registered with the FDA as a medical device manufacturer and is certified to the ISO 13485 standard.

DMEM/F-12 contains no proteins, lipids, or growth factors. Therefore, DMEM/F-12 may require supplementation, commonly with 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). DMEM/F-12 uses a sodium bicarbonate buffer system and therefore requires a 5-10% CO2 environment to maintain physiological pH.
