Storing at room temperature offers labs greater flexibility and requires less energy
For biological researchers looking to reduce their reliance on cold storage without disrupting their existing workflow, Thermo Fisher Scientific's new cell culture media are the first to remain stable at room temperature.
Gibco BenchStable Media are the latest offering in the Gibco product line from Thermo Fisher Scientific and provide a flexible alternative for biological researchers that also saves energy. The new culture media are shipped in sustainable packaging.
Gibco BenchStable Media are packaged in fully recyclable boxes. The packaging virtually eliminates light exposure, which can degrade basal media components and alter their performance. In addition, Gibco media bottles are made from polyethylene terephthalate with a high-density polyethylene lid, two of the most highly recycled plastics.
Gibco BenchStable Media can act as a direct replacement for basal media used in researchers' existing workflows, allowing for easy substitution. The product line is available in the most commonly used basal media formulations: DMEM, DMEM/F-12, MEM, and RPMI 1640, all of which include GlutaMAX Supplement. Gibco BenchStable Media supports cellular proliferation and maximum cell densities comparable to conventional basal media formulations when supplemented with 10 percent Fetal Bovine Serum.
