Francelab is offering a wide range of sera, cell culture media for Research and Development and Quality Control laboratories in the field of Lifesciences and Biopharmaceuticals.
L-Glutamine is an essential amino acid required by virtually all mammalian and insect cells grown in culture. It is a crucial component of many cell culture media and serves as a major energy source for cells in culture.
L-Glutamine is very stable as a dry powder and as a frozen solution. However, in liquid media or stock solutions, L-Glutamine can degrade relatively rapidly. L-Glutamine is also more labile in cell culture solution than other amino acids.
Trypsin is a porcine pancreas-derived enzyme that is commonly used for the dissociation and disaggregation of anchorage-dependent mammalian cells and tissues. The concentration of trypsin necessary to dislodge the cells from their substrate depends on the sensitivity of the cells.
D-glucose monohydrate is a common natural sugar involved in processes such as energy production, glycosylation, and formation of glycans that provide structure to cells. It is involved in a detrimental process in cells called glycation. It is used as a supplement for cell culture and in numerous cellular processes.
Phytohaemagglutinin is a lectin extracted from red kidney beans (Phaseolus vulgaris).
PHA-M is the mucoprotein form and is a crude extract used for the stimulation of cell proliferation in lymphocyte culture.
PHA-M also has a powerful erythroagglutinating property and it was originally used for separating leukocytes from whole blood.
Accutase is a ready to use cell detachment solution of proteolytic and collagenolytic enzymes.
Accutase is the "gentler form" of trypsin. It can replace Trypsin/EDTA for the detachment and dissociation of anchorage-dependent cells from surfaces. It can also be used on suspension cells to reduce clumping in preparation for counting.
