Gibco Cancer Cell Culture Starter Kits

 Gibco Lung Cancer Cell Culture Starter Kit

A convenient package of reagents for the culture and transfection of the most commonly used cancer cell lines most commonly used in research. Each kit contains the most widely used reagents for the tissue type helping you to reduce the time needed from planning to execution of each experiment. Available in breast, liver, lung and prostate.

Gibco Heat Stable Recombinant Human bFGF

Gibco Heat Stable Recombinant Human bFGF

When performing wound healing assays, or scratch assays, to determine the migratory potential of cancer cells, it is important to have a growth factor that does not degrade in cell culture conditions.  Native basic fibroblast growth factor degrades rapidly at 37°C, adding undesired variability. Gibco Heat Stable bFGF is a superior solution to the problem by maintaining ≥ 80% bioactivity at 37°C for at least 72 hours. Learn more
