Neurobasal®-A Medium is a basal medium formulated to meet the special cell culture requirements of post-natal and adult brain neuronal cells when used with GIBCO® B-27® Supplement
. Neurobasal®-A Medium can be used to grow neuronal cells from hippocampus, cortex and other regions of the brain. Neurobasal®-A Medium allows for both long and short term maintenance of homogeneous populations of neuronal cells without the need of an astrocyte feeder layer.Add Your Own Supplements
All Neurobasal® media contain no L-glutamine, L-glutamic acid, or aspartic acid. Neurobasal® media must be supplemented with 0.5 mM L-glutamine
