UltraGlutamineTM II Supplement, 200 mM (100X)
UltraGlutamineTMSupplement is an extremely stable dipeptide form of L-glutamine that avoids accumulation of toxic ammonia produced by spontaneous degradation in the medium.
UltraGlutamineTMSupplement can be autoclaved (121°C, 20 minutes) with no significant breakdown.
It can be substituted for L-glutamine on an equimolar basis for most adherent and suspension cultures.
UltraGlutamineTMII Supplement is L-Glycyl-L-glutamine.
A cellular adapation period is not required and growth of most cell types is comparable to that obtained with L-glutamine. Suitable for hybridoma cells.
Applications that may benefit from UltraGlutamineTMSupplements are:
- Ammonia sensitive systems (bioreactors)
- Long term toxicity studies
- Long incubations without feeding (cloning assays) Supplied in normal saline at a concentration of 200 mM.
