CTS GlutaMAX Supplement is an animal origin free (AOF) dipeptide alternative to L-glutamine, with increased stability that improves cell health. CTS GlutaMAX Supplement can be used as a direct substitute for L-glutamine at equimolar concentrations in mammalian and stem cell culture with minimal or no adaptation.
Gibco CTS products are designed for use in manufacturing of cell or gene products, supporting your transition from research to clinical applications.
Compared to L-glutamine, CTS GlutaMAX Supplement:
• Minimizes toxic ammonia build-up—Unlike L-glutamine, CTS GlutaMAX Supplement does not spontaneously break down to form ammonia. This prevents waste build-up and maintains a fresh supply of L-glutamine during long-term culture.
• Improves growth efficiency and performance of mammalian cell cultures—Lower levels of ammonia result in improved cell viability. In addition, culture conditions are more controlled due to the consistent concentration of CTS GlutaMAX Supplement that is not possible with L-glutamine.
• Remains stable across a wide range of temperatures—CTS GlutaMAX Supplement retains full functionality at room temperature or 2–8°C, for convenient storage and handling.
Closed systems compatible
This size of CTS GlutaMAX Supplement is provided in bioprocess container format with the chamber constructed from Aegis 5-14 film. Sterile, weldable C-Flex™ tubing with a female luer lock provides versatile connection options for integrating into a closed system manufacturing process.
The Gibco CTS product line enables you to reduce your burden in qualifying reagents during your transition from research to clinical applications.
