HiGlutaXL™ RPMI-1640
w/ L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine and Sodium bicarbonate
1X Liquid Cell Culture Medium

Product Code: HM-AL028G

Product Description:

HiGlutaXLTM medium contains the stabilised dipeptide form of L-glutamine, L-alanyl-L-glutamine. HiGlutaXLTM 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-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 40 C for longer periods.

AL028G is HiGlutaXLTM RPMI 1640 with L-alanyl-Lglutamine and sodium bicarbonate. Users are advised to review the literature for recommendations regarding medium supplementation and physiological growth requirements specific for different cell lines.

Quality Control:
  • Appearance:Orangish red colored, clear solution.
  • pH at 25oC:7.3± 0.3
  • Osmolality in mOsm/Kg H2O: 290- 330
  • Sterility: No bacterial or fungal growth is observed after 14 days of incubation, as per USP specification.
  • Cultural Response: Growth promotion : The growth promotion capacity of the medium is assessed by supplementing the medium with 10% fetal bovine serum and checking the growth using an appropriate cell line and comparing it with a control medium. Growth promotion studies are carried out through two or more subcultures. The medium is analyzed for its growth supporting property qualitatively by analyzing the cells for the morphology and quantitatively by estimating the cell counts. The medium is also tested for its good anchoraging capacity and buffering action. Toxicity on cell lines: Negative
  • Endotoxin Content: NMT 5EU/ml

Storage and shelf life:
  • Store at 2-8°C away from bright light.
  • Shelf life is 18 months.
  • Use before expiry date given on the product label.
