cGMP Manufacturing and Quality System
For supply chain continuity, Life Technologies manufactures Gibco® F-12 at two separate facilities located in Grand Island, NY and Scotland, UK. Both sites are compliant with cGMP manufacturing requirements, are certified to ISO 13485, and are registered with the FDA as medical device manufacturers. In addition, the New York facility has ISO 9001 certification.
Gibco® F-12 contains no proteins or growth factors. Therefore, F-12 requires supplementation, commonly with 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). F-12 uses a sodium bicarbonate buffer system (1.176 g / L) and therefore requires a 5-10% CO2 environment to maintain physiological pH.
