Product Intended 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
For supply chain continuity, we manufacture Gibco® L-15 at two separate facilities located in Grand Island, NY and Scotland, UK. Both sites are compliant with cGMP manufacturing requirements, are certified to ISO 13485, and are registered with the FDA as medical device manufacturers.

L-15 contains no proteins, lipids, or growth factors. Therefore, F-10 requires supplementation, commonly with 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). Powder forms of Gibco® L-15 cell culture medium require pH adjustment and filtration at the time of preparation (see protocol for details).
For Research Use or Further Manufacturing. Not for diagnostic use or direct administration into humans or animals.
