Neurobasal-A medium without D-glucose and sodium pyruvate is used to support the growth of post-natal CNS neurons in applications where the presence of D-glucose and sodium pyruvate can cause interference.
For neural studies that require the absence of insulin, glucose, and sodium pyruvate, such as glucose response or insulin response studies, we recommend Gibco B-27 Supplement Minus Insulin
as a supplement to this medium.
Neurobasal Medium is suitable for use in most neuronal cell applications. For other applications, we provide alternative formulations of Neurobasal media
and B-27 supplements
For established protocols using Neurobasal media, access our Gibco Neurobiology Protocol Handbook
