HiGlutaXL™ Minimum Essential Medium Eagle (MEM)
With L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine, Earle's salt and Sodium bicarbonate
Without NEAA 1X Liquid Cell Culture Medium

Product Code: HM-AL080G

Product Description:

HiGlutaXL™ media contain the stabilized dipeptide form of L-glutamine, L-alanyl-L-glutamine. HiGlutaXL™ media offer several advantages over the conventional glutamine containing media. Dipeptide form prevents the intramolecular cyclization reaction, thus preventing toxic build-up of ammonia. L-alanyl-L-glutamine incorporates L-alanine that protects the alpha amino acid group. Aminopeptidases within the cell break the dipeptide, gradually releasing both L-glutamine and L-alanine for use by the cell. The gradual release of L-glutamine obviates the need to supplement L-glutamine frequently and allows liquid media to be stored at 4°C for longer periods.

AL020G is HiGlutaXL™ Minimum Essential Medium Eagle with L-alanyl-L-glutamine, Earle's salts and sodium bicarbonate. It does not contain non-essential amino acids. Users are advised to review the literature for recommendations regarding medium supplementation and physiological growth requirements specific for different cell lines.
