L-glutamine is supplied in both liquid and powdered forms to be used as an amino acid supplement for cell culture media.
Powdered glutamine is supplied as a USP grade chemical and liquid formulations of glutamine are supplied at 200 mM (100X) at a final concentration of 29.2 mg/ml in 0.85% NaCl.
While results may vary depending on the cell line, using GlutaMAX™-I Supplement in place of L-glutamine in cell culture can improve cell viability and growth, potentially increasing productivity levels. Increase media stability, minimize toxic ammonia build-up, and maximize cell performance. Read more - Stability of GlutaMAX™-I vs. L-Glutamine.
