cGMP Manufacturing
Gibco® Fischer's medium 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.

Fischer's medium contains no proteins, lipids, or growth factors. Fischer's medium typically requires supplementation of Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). Fischer's medium uses a sodium bicarbonate buffer system (1.125 g / L) and therefore requires a 5-10% CO2 environment to maintain physiological pH.
For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
