cGMP Manufacturing and Quality System
Gibco® Opti-MEM® 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 standards. For supply chain continuity, Life Technologies offers a comparable Gibco® Opti-MEM® product made in our Scotland facility (22600-134). This facility is registered with the FDA as a medical device manufacturer and is certified to the ISO 13485 standard.
Gibco® Opti-MEM® uses a sodium bicarbonate buffer system (2.4 g/L) and therefore requires a 5-10% CO2 environment to maintain physiological pH.
Powder forms of Gibco® cell culture medium require sodium bicarbonate supplementation, pH adjustment and filtration at the time of preparation (see protocol for details).
