cGMP Manufacturing and Quality System
For supply chain continuity, Life Technologies manufactures Gibco® Opti-MEM® 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® 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).
