Tool name: PlasmaxTM, Glucose-Free
Tool type: Media
Tool sub-type: Cell culture media
Application: Cell culture; Cell growth and viability; Glucose starvation experiments; Cancer metabolism studies; Metabolic flux analysis
Description: A glucose-free variant of physiologically relevant cell culture medium PlasmaxTM (Cat. #156371).
While this glucose-free PlasmaxTM eliminates glucose from its formulation, it still preserves the original optimized composition of PlasmaxTM > (Cat. #156371) derived from over 80 components. These constituents encompass amino acids and derivatives, inorganic salts, trace elements, and vitamins, with more than 50 components present at levels mirroring those found in human plasma.
This medium was designed to tailor cell culture experimental conditions for a range of applications including glucose starvation experiments, tumour microenvironment and cancer metabolism studies, metabolic tracing of glucose incorporating stable isotopes (e.g. 13C), etc. which could shed light on critical pathways and mechanisms underlying cancer cell metabolism and glucose utilisation.
Formulation: PlasmaxTM cell culture media (Cat.# 156371) formulation without glucose.
