Hibernate Medium is a CO2-independent nutrient medium for the maintenance of neural cells, tissue, and tissue slices. Hibernate-A Medium is optimized for adult and postnatal cells or tissue in ambient carbon dioxide levels.
Hibernate Medium enables neurons to be maintained in ambient CO2 levels for up to 48 hours. This provides scientists with greater convenience and control while running bench-top live cell experiments, such as microscopy, flow cytometry, and other physiology studies. Hibernate Medium also allows for the preservation of viable brain tissue before processing for up to a month with refrigeration and maintenance of tissue slices.
Hibernate Medium may be combined with B-27 Supplements to yield a complete medium.
