L-Glutamine (200 mM) Gibco™

L-Glutamine is an amino acid that is required for cell culture. L-Glutamine participates in the formation of purine and pyrimidine nucleotides, amino sugars, glutathione, L-glutamate, and other amino acids, as well as in protein synthesis and glucose production. Unlike most other amino acids, L-glutamine is not stable in solution. The rate at which degradation proceeds is a function of time, temperature, and pH. Gibco® L-glutamine is a ready-to-use 200 mM stock solution that acts as a cell culture supplement. The optimal concentration is dependent upon the cell type and medium used to culture the cells, but generally falls in the range of 2–6 mM.

We also offer Gibco® GlutaMAX™ Supplement as a stable alternative to L-glutamine.

Dual-site cGMP Manufacturing and Quality System
Gibco® L-glutamine is manufactured at a cGMP compliant facility located in Paisley, Scotland, UK. The facility is registered with the FDA as a medical device manufacturer and is certified to the ISO 13485 standard. For supply chain continuity, we offer an identical Gibco® L-glutamine product made in our Grand Island facility (25030-081). This facility is registered with the FDA as a medical device manufacturer and is certified to the ISO 13485 standards.

StemPro™ Accutase™ Cell Dissociation Reagent Gibco™

StemPro® Accutase® Cell Dissociation Reagent is a cell detachment solution of proteolytic and collagenolytic enzymes. Accutase® does not contain mammalian or bacterial derived products and is useful for the routine detachment of cells from standard tissue culture plasticware and adhesion coated plasticware, including Geltrex™, CELLStart™ and polymers. Accutase® performs exceptionally well in detaching primary and stem cells and maintaining high cell viabilty compared to animal origin enzymes such as trypsin. Some downstream applications following Accutase® treatment include analysis of cell surface markers, virus growth assay, cell proliferation, tumor cell migration assays, routine cell passage, production scale-up (bioreactor), and flow cytometry. Cell lines tested for Accutase® application include human embryonic stem cells, human mesenchymal stem cells, human neural stem cells and primary cells including macrophages, fibroblasts, keratinocytes, vascular endothelial cells, hepatocytes, and established cell lines such as adherent CHO and BHK cells and 293 cells. A complete list of published references is available on our website. Accutase® is a trademark of ICT, Inc.

Anti-Clumping Agent Gibco™

GIBCO® Anti-Clumping Agent is a concentrated liquid reagent that reduces cell clumping to assist in attaining higher viable cell densities in suspension culture. Anti-Clumping Agent is a gentle, animal origin-free, chemically defined formulation that contains no proteins, enzymes, hydrolysates, or components of unknown composition.

• Reduced cell clumping in suspension culture
• Higher viable cell densities
• Animal origin-free and chemically defined components
• Convenient packaging with a larger size now available
• Customization available to configure packaging and delivery

Simple and Gentle Cell Dissociation
Cell lines adapted to suspension culture can revert to a more adherent or aggregated “clumping" state. When this occurs, culture condition can be greatly improved by adding a gentle reagent to reduce clumping and adhesion instead of the harsh enzymes often found in cell dissociation products. Anti-Clumping Agent is a simple, gentle, concentrated solution which, when added to culture media (usually titrated between a 1:100 and 1:1000 dilution), can reduce cell clumping significantly.

Reduced Clumping, Increased Viability, Improved Protein Expression
Reduced cell clumping achieved through use of Anti-Clumping Agent is illustrated below (Fig 1). See also the data demonstrating improved viable cell density (Fig 2). Higher viable cell density contributes to the stabilization of culture conditions for better protein yield.

For actual cell dissociation, we recommend our animal origin-free TrypLE™ products.

Use Anti-Clumping Agent after Transfection
Anti-Clumping Agent is not recommended in all suspension cell culture conditions. For example, when creating a cell line using lipid cationic transfection, Anti-Clumping Agent can interfere with the transfection process, so in this case we recommend that Anti-Clumping Agent be used after transfection.

Animal Origin-free and Chemically Defined Components
Because Anti-Clumping Agent is made with only animal origin free and chemically defined components, you can be assured that the risk of adding adventitious agents to your culture system is minimized. Avoiding additives in your system that are not well defined can lead to more robust results from batch to batch.

Convenient and Customizable Packaging
Previously, Anti-Clumping Agent was only available in a 20 mL bottle. However, it is now available in a more economical and convenient 100 mL bottle. For even larger packaging, you can custom configure this product by clicking on the 'Customize this Product' link under the 'Add to Cart' button above or by emailing us at CustomMedia@lifetech.com.

EfficientFeed™ A+ 3X Supplement Gibco™

Gibco EfficientFeed A+ 3X Supplement is a single-part liquid supplement for fed batch addition to the culture of multiple cell lines to assist with process development and maximization of bioreactor utilization. Compared to original CHO CD EfficientFeed A AGT nutrient supplement, EfficientFeed A+ 3X Supplement has components that are super-concentrated from 66.4 g/L (1X AGT) to 199.2 g/L (3X), helping reduce product dilution or increase titers with additional feeding. The supplement is an animal origin-free, chemically defined formulation that contains no proteins, hydrolysates, or components of incompletely defined composition.

Which EfficientFeed+ supplement to choose?

Consider EfficientFeed A+ Supplement when:
• You have used CHO CD EfficientFeed A supplement in the past and wish to explore simpler reconstitution and super-concentration benefits during delivery of key components
• You are currently using CD OptiCHO as your base cell growth medium

Consider EfficientFeed B+ Supplement when:
• You have used CHO CD EfficientFeed B supplement in the past and wish to explore simpler reconstitution and super-concentration benefits during delivery of key components
• You are currently using CD CHO as your base cell growth medium

Consider EfficientFeed C+ Supplement when:
• You have used CD EfficientFeed C supplement in the past and wish to explore super-concentration benefits during delivery of key components
• You want higher productivity in GS CHO, CHO-K1, and CHO-S derived cell lines
• You are currently using CD FortiCHO as your base cell growth medium
• You are using a base medium with greater than 6 g/L glucose or a hydrolysate at Day 0

Increasing titers
As a complete feed, EfficientFeed+ supplements have been shown to provide multiple-fold increases in titer versus batch culture and are an excellent starting point for process development as ready-to-use single-part liquid feeds.

Maximizing bioreactor utilization
Have you ever wished for more working volume at the start of a bioreactor run to produce more protein, but need too much feeding volume space? Have you ever thought that room for more feeding might achieve a new level of titer from a process and maybe even reduce the number of bioreactor runs needed per year? Using super-concentrated ready-to-feed liquid feeding supplements helps reduce product dilution, increase space for additional feeding, and/or increase the working volume at the start of the run. In fact, you may gain about 20% more bioreactor utilization with this super-concentrated EfficientFeed+ product.

Simplified handling to reduce risk in scale-up
The ability to scale up in liquid or AGT dry format provides ease of handling and storage in manufacturing and other bioprocess settings. Fewer parts and steps in reconstitution mean fewer opportunities for operator error. Further, the ability to store this feed, even when super-concentrated, for the length of a bioreactor run at room temperature, in the dark, helps reduce chances of contamination during closed system connections by reducing the number of connections to the bioreactor to one.

Resurge™ CD Pak Gibco™

Resurge CD Pak are a diverse set of chemically defined supplement formulations to complement a variety of base media.
