Chicken Embryo Extract Powder
100-163P

Gemini’s chicken embryo extract is prepared from 9-12 day old eggs collected from registered flocks and found to be free from clinical signs of notifiable diseases.

It is processed as a 50% extract in phosphate-buffered saline that is supplemented with 100IU/mL Penicillin, 100 ug/mL Streptomycin and 2.5ug/mL Amphotericin. The liquid extract is sterile filtered to 0.2 µm and lyophilized in 10mL aliquots. The sterility of this lyophilized powder cannot be guaranteed and should be sterile filtered once more after reconstitution.

ITS (Insulin, Transferrin, Selenium) Solution (100X)
400-145

ITS (Insulin, Transferrin, Selenium) is a chemically defined supplement for a variety of cell culture applications. ITS supplement contains components which are required for optimal performance of serum-free media. Supplementation of ITS to different conventional nutrient media substantially reduces the FBS requirement for routine maintenance of many cell lines.

Components: Contains 1.0 mg/ml insulin from bovine pancreas, 0.55 mg/ml human transferrin (substantially iron-free), and 0.5 μg/ml sodium selenite.

Human Recombinant Insulin Solution (10 mg/mL)
800-112

This product is an aqueous solution containing 10 mg/mL of human recombination insulin. Insulin regulates uptake, utilization and storage of glucose, amino acids and fatty acids in cells and inhibits decomposition of glycogen, proteins and lipids. Recommended for use in cell culture applications at 0.5 to 1 mL per liter of medium, but should be optimized for each process.

Human Insulin Powder – Recombinant
800-112P

Human Insulin is a peptide hormone produced in the islets of langerhans in the pancreas. It is central to regulating carbohydrate metabolism in mammalian cells. In synthetic medium insulin is one of the most important components in the cell culture supplement that stimulates mammalian cell growth in the absence of serum with a generation time equal to that of cells in serum-containing medium. It is recommended to be 1-20 µg/mL in media, but should be optimized for each process.

Bovine Insulin Powder
700-112P

Insulin is a polypeptide hormone produced in the pancreatic islets of Langerhans that has a molecular weight of ~5800 Da. Insulin primarily regulates the uptake and storage of glucose in cellular systems. It also plays a related role in the metabolism of certain amino acids and fatty acids. Bovine insulin is remarkably similar to human insulin, differing in molecular structure by only three amino acid residues.
