GIBCO® Media, Reagents, and Supplements for Cytogenetic Analysis

  • Optimized and prequalified for cytogenetics
  • Provide high mitotic index
  • Deliver excellent chromosomal morphology
  • Produce clear, reproducible results that are easy to analyze and interpret

GIBCO® media, reagents, and supplements are specifically formulated and application tested by an independent laboratory to deliver clear, reproducible results in standard clinical cytogenetic protocols.  Each media has been designed and optimized for the analysis of amniotic fluid cells, chorionic villus samples, bone marrow cells, or peripheral blood lymphocytes.

Amniotic Fluid and Chorionic Villus Cells

If you’re looking to culture human primary amniotic fluid cells or chorionic villus cells, AminoMAX™ media is the right product for you.  Our formulations are designed to increase cell attachment, growth rates and provide high metaphase yields.

Bone Marrow Cells

A bone marrow aspirate provides unique and valuable research data, but cell numbers are generally very low therefore the media you select here could not be any more critical.  MarrowMAX™ media contains a novel stromal cell conditioned medium for optimal growth and eliminates the need to supplement media saving both time and money.

Peripheral Blood Lymphocytes

PB-MAX™ karyotyping media is a fully supplemented, RPMI-based medium optimized for the karyotype analysis of peripheral blood lymphocytes.  Ready to use, it is proven for performance and reliability.

Karyotyping Reagents

The KaryoMAX® line of products and reagents are designed to reduce culture time and days to harvest.
