CD BHK-21 Production Medium Gibco™

Gibco® CD BHK-21 Production Medium is a chemically defined, protein-free cell culture medium. It is designed to support the growth of BHK-21 cells in serum-free suspension culture. This medium is suitable for large-scale manufacturing applications.

CD BHK-21 Production Medium is manufactured as follows:
WithWithout
• L-glutamine• Phenol Red
• Dry powder formatProtein hydrolysates

Gibco® CD BHK-21 Production Medium is the first cell culture medium supporting complete serum-free and protein-free processes for BHK-21 cells. The dry powder format is easy to reconstitute, since it has no hydrolysates in the formulation. Adapting cells from serum-containing media is a rapid and simple procedure. BHK-21 cells can achieve high cell densities and maintain high cell viability in this medium.

Gibco® CD BHK-21 Production Medium is suitable for large-scale suspension culture. Because it does not require supplementation with serum or other undefined components, Gibco® CD BHK-21 Production Medium eliminates the risks associated with serum, while allowing you to achieve consistent virus titers and simplifying downstream purification.

cGMP Manufacturing
Gibco® CD BHK-21 Production Medium is manufactured at a cGMP-compliant facility located in Grand Island, New York. The facility is registered with the FDA as a medical device manufacturer and is certified to ISO 13485 standards.

B-27™ Electrophysiology Kit Gibco™

The B-27® Electrophysiology Kit contains Neurobasal® Medium, Electro and B-27® Supplement, Electro, both specifically developed to enhance network spike rates in cultured neurons when compared with other media and supplement combinations. Electrophysiology is the fundamental technique to assess such electrical activities to study the functions and dysfunctions in cultured neurons.

Using the B-27® Electrophysiology Kit in your neuronal studies offers:

• Increased synapse densities
• More spontaneous spike rates
• Improved multielectrode array efficiency

More Synapses, More Signal, Simpler Testing
The B-27® Electrophysiology Kit is an improvement to Neurobasal® and B-27® combination for cultured networks. Hippocampal and cortical neurons cultured in this media system show an increased density of synapses and neurotransmitter receptors which produce higher spike rates in neural networks, helping to simplifying your study.

Relevant Results for Your Electrophysiology Studies
Using Invitrogen® B-27® Electrophysiology Kit, allows you to get more relevant results when studying neuron physiology and the biochemical basis of normal and disease processes. The B-27® Electrophysiology Kit can yield better results in other electrophysiological studies, including neurons used in multielectrode arrays in neurotoxicology and neuropharmacology studies.

For other applications, we offer alternative formulations of B-27® and Neurobasal®.

Liver Perfusion Medium (1X) Gibco™

Liver Perfusion Medium is a buffered, balanced salt solution formulated to cleanse the liver of blood, prevent clotting, and initiate loosening of cell-to-cell contact.

Dispase II, powder Gibco™

Dispase II (neutral protease) is an amino-endo peptidase that hydrolyzes the N-terminal peptide bonds of non-polar amino acid residues. This sequence is found with high frequency in collagen. Dispase II has a mild proteolytic action that makes it useful for the isolation and routine passaging of primary cells. Dispase II is relatively gentle, dissociates well at physiological temperature and pH, and generally maintains cell membrane integrity.

Gibco® Dispase II is produced in Bacillus polymyxa and packaged as a lyophilized, non-sterile powder for research use in cell or tissue dissociation, and to prevent clumping in suspension cultures. Gibco® Dispase II activity is guaranteed to be greater than 0.5 units/mg.

CD OptiCHO™ AGT™ Medium Gibco™

CD OptiCHO™ medium is specifically designed to offer high performance and yield with recombinant CHO cells in a chemically defined fed-batch environment. The protein-free, animal origin free formulation is designed to provide consistency and reduces the need to screen for adventitious agents. CD OptiCHO™ medium builds on Gibco® CD CHO’s legacy of consistent cell growth and titers, while offering up to 40% better titer and cell growth over select competitors. Thanks to its low osmolality and advanced CHO CD EfficientFeed™ Liquid Nutrient Supplement Kit feeding options, CD OptiCHO™ medium is capable of gaining 2-5 fold increases in fed-batch productivity over batch culture.

When to Use CD OptiCHO™ Medium
• You are using a transfected CHO cell line other than CHO K1, GS CHO or CHO-S™ cell lines
• Optimization of feeding strategies will be part of your base medium selection testing in an effort to maximize productivity
• Your CHO cell line is “finicky," i.e. hard to grow or adapt

When to Consider Another Gibco® Medium

Consider CD FortiCHO™ medium when:
• The cell line you are using is a transfected CHO K1, GS CHO or CHO-S™ cell line
• Maximum batch culture cell densities and protein titers are needed
• You have time to adapt cells into a new medium in an effort to maximize titers
• Cell health at harvest is a priority for downstream processing

Consider CD CHO medium when:
• Your GS CHO cells are recommended to be grown in CD CHO medium
• Your cells have been successfully cultured in CD CHO medium in the past and your process is nearing a regulatory filing (DMF available)

Consider CD DG44 medium when:
• You use parental DG44 or DXB11 CHO cells (dhfr-)

Liquid Media Formulations
Gibco® AGT™ media are also available in a liquid format that offers the same performance and formulation as the AGT™ media format. Gibco® liquid media are manufactured animal origin-free with the same complete, serum-free, protein-free, chemically-defined formulation and performance as their AGT™ media counterparts.

Design Your Own Media Specific to Your Needs
Whether it’s a bench-level experiment or large scale biomanufacturing process, we offer specialized formats, packaging, and quality levels specific to your needs.

Dynamis™ AGT™ Medium Gibco™

Gibco® Dynamis™ AGT™ dry format medium is specifically designed to offer the highest batch and fed-batch culture performance and yield with recombinant CHO cells in a chemically defined environment. The chemically defined, protein-free, animal origin component-free formulation provides the power to achieve high titers, start process development faster, and streamline or simplify transfer to manufacturing scale.

Power to achieve higher titers
Dynamis™ AGT™ Medium is fortified to help maximize recombinant CHO cell growth and protein expression in suspension batch culture, offering 170% greater production than select competitive media with simple glucose supplementation by day 14. Cultures grown in Dynamis™ AGT™ Medium extend to even higher titers demonstrating good cell viability out to day 21. This medium can also provide up to 60% greater fed-batch growth and production over glucose-only fed-batch culture for selected cell lines and applications when used with EfficientFeed™ C+ AGT™ Supplement.

Power to start process development faster
As a fortified medium, Dynamis™ AGT™ provides the power to get to a high cell density over 10 million cells per mL faster than competitive products and sustains that cell density longer by just maintaining glucose levels. The viable cell growth achieved make it a good choice for scale-up if you have started with CD FortiCHO™ medium. When paired with EfficientFeed™ C+ AGT™ Supplement, it provides a fast and efficient way to develop a process.

The power to streamline transfer to manufacturing
By choosing Dynamis™ AGT™ Medium, you obtain not only the benefits of the medium formulation, but also the benefits of AGT™ dry format technology. This all-in-one product is designed to simplify scale-up and manufacturing by being easy to reconstitute (just add water), with no adjustments of pH or osmolarity necessary. This can help provide efficiencies through supply chain simplicity, reconstitution simplicity, and therefore help reduce expense.

Use Dynamis™ AGT™ Medium when:
• The cell line you are using is a transfected CHO K1, GS CHO, or CHO-S™ cell line
• Maximum batch culture cell densities and protein titers are needed
• You have time to adapt cells into a new medium in an effort to maximize titers
• Cell health at harvest is a priority for downstream processing
