Gibco® Ham's F-12K (Kaighn's) medium contains many components not found in traditional basal media, such as putrescine, thymidine, hypoxanthine, zinc, and higher levels of all amino acids and sodium pyruvate. These additions allow the medium to be supplemented with very low levels of serum or defined components, for some cell types.
For Research Use Only: Not intended for animal or human diagnostic or therapeutic use.
Gibco® Ham's F-12K (Kaighn's) medium is manufactured at a cGMP compliant facility located in Grand Island, New York. The facility is registered with the FDA as a medical device manufacturer and is certified to ISO 13485 and ISO 9001 standards.
Ham's F-12K (Kaighn's) medium contains no proteins or growth factors. Ham's F-12K (Kaighn's) medium is often supplemented with growth factors and Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). The FBS concentration must be optimized for each cell line. Ham's F-12K (Kaighn's) medium uses a sodium bicarbonate buffer system (2.5 g/L) and therefore requires a 5-10% CO2 environment to maintain physiological pH.
