No more DMSO – for the most sensitive cells
DMSO is added to most freezing reagents to help avoid formation of ice crystals, which of course harm the cells. However, DMSO is cytotoxic and can reduce the survival rate of certain sensitive cell lines. Bambanker DMSO Free is made without DMSO. Instead, it uses a unique formulation to avoid the formation of ice crystals. This makes Bambanker DMSO Free especially suitable for cell lines that proved to be sensitive to DMSO under long-term storage conditions.
There a four different version of BambankerTM:
- BambankerTM (standard for all cell lines, package units: 20 mL, 5 x 20 mL, 120 mL)
- BambankerTM Direct (for hybridoma cells, package unit: 20 mL)
- BambankerTM DMSO Free (for high sensitivity cells, package unit: 20 mL)
- BambankerTM hRM (for ES and iPS cells, package units: 20 mL, 120 mL)
