HiGlutaXL™ RPMI-1640
With L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine, HEPES buffer and Sodium bicarbonate
1X Liquid Cell Culture Medium

Product Code: HM-AL060G

Product Description:

HiGlutaXL™ medium contains the stabilised dipeptide form of L-Glutamine, L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine. HiGlutaXL™ medium offers several advantages over the conventional glutamine containing media. Dipeptide form prevents the intramolecular cyclization reaction, thus preventing toxic build -up of ammonia. L-Alanyl-LGlutamine 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 LGlutamine obviates the need to supplement L-Glutamine frequently and allows liquid media to be stored at 4°C for longer periods.

AL060G is HiGlutaXL™ RPMI-1640 medium supplemented with 25mM HEPES buffer, L-alanylL-glutamine and sodium bicarbonate. HEPES, a zwitterionic buffer having a pKa of 7.3 at 37° C prevents the initial rise in pH that tends to occur at the initiation of a culture and increases the buffering capacity of the medium. Users are advised to review the literature for recommendations regarding medium supplementation and physiological growth requirements specific for different cell lines.
