Product FAQ

What concentration of bovine serum albumin (BSA) do I need to use in dilute solutions of Gibco Recombinant Proteins?

Answer

When making dilute solutions of Gibco Recombinant Proteins, a carrier protein is required to minimize the protein binding to the surface of plasticwear. BSA is generally used at 0.1 %, but sometimes as high as 1%.

Product FAQ

How many components are there in Gibco Essential 8 Medium?

Answer

Gibco Essential 8 Medium contains only the eight required components for culturing PSCs. The medium was developed by Chen et al (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21478862) to overcome the variability issues observed with mTeSR Medium. Gibco Essential 8 Medium is designed to have less variability due to limited components and removal of albumin (BSA) from the formulation. Gibco Essential 8 Medium is provided as a convenient two-component kit: 500 mL Gibco Essential 8 Basal Medium and 10 mL Gibco Essential 8 Supplement (50X).
