This liquid formulation of trypsin contains EDTA and phenol red. Gibco Trypsin-EDTA is made from trypsin powder, an irradiated mixture of proteases derived from porcine pancreas. Due to its digestive strength, trypsin is widely used for cell dissociation, routine cell culture passaging, and primary tissue dissociation. The trypsin concentration required for dissociation varies with cell type and experimental requirements. See the complete range of Gibco trypsin solutions and recommended dissociation conditions.

This trypsin solution is modified as follows:
Phenol Red

The complete formulation is available.

We offer a variety of trypsin formulations, including animal origin-free TrypLE reagents.
