Product Name: Fischer’s Medium, Modified, w/L-Glutamine, MgSO4
Catalog No: PG049
Product Format: Liquid
General Information: Fischer’s Medium was originally formulated to support serial
propagation of cells from leukemic mice. In initial studies, cells in culture were examined
for resistance to chemotherapeutic agents. While most of such studies were carried out
using whole animals, Fischer’s Medium made it possible to conduct parallel studies in
vitro. Fischer’s Medium supports clonal reproduction of cells, particularly lymphoblasts
from primary explants or from cells in culture.
The medium is for research use only and not approved for human or animal use or for
application in any in vitro diagnostic procedure. Storage of the medium and supplements
Please note that the basal medium has to be stored at 4°C up to 8°C but never should be
frozen. The supplement has to be stored at -20°C. Protect from light for a longer time period.
Preparing and Stability:
Thaw the supplement mixture at 37°C before adding to the basal medium. After thawing
please rinse the bottle and the tube with 70% ethanol as protection. Remove ethanol
excess before opening the cap of the tube. After adding the supplement mixture to the
basal medium slew carefully to get a homogenous medium. Please be careful not to
touch the tube or bottle interior threads with your fingers. Please avoid long term
exposure to light because some components are light sensitive. Also do not warm up the
medium over 37°C. All this protects your medium against contamination or degradation
of essential components.
