Ham's F12 Medium, w: 1.0 mM stable Glutamine, w: 1.0 mM Sodium pyruvate, w: 1.176 g/L NaHCO3
Ham's F-12 Medium, also known as Ham's F-12 Nutrient Mix, is a widely used basal medium designed specifically for cell culture. It has been extensively employed for serum-free, single-cell plating of Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) cells, lung cells, and mouse L cells. Additionally, Ham’s F-12 is the medium of choice for a Clonal Toxicity Assay (CTA).
One of its notable advantages is the ability to support cell growth without the need for serum supplementation. This eliminates potential interference caused by serum components, ensuring consistent and reliable experimental results. By providing a serum-free culture environment, Ham's F-12 Medium offers researchers greater control over their investigations.
Another key feature of Ham's F-12 Medium is its suitability for single-cell plating. This makes it an excellent choice for a variety of cell lines, including CHO cells, lung cells, and mouse L cells. The medium's optimized nutrient composition facilitates efficient attachment and growth of individual cells, enabling the establishment of homogeneous cell cultures with improved reproducibility.
Moreover, Ham's F-12 Medium has gained recognition as the preferred medium for the Clonal Toxicity Assay (CTA). This assay plays a critical role in assessing the cytotoxic effects of substances on cells. By utilizing Ham's F-12 Medium in the CTA, researchers can accurately evaluate the impact of various compounds or treatments on individual cells, providing valuable insights into toxicological profiles.
Quality control

pH = 7.2 +/
- 0.02 at 20-25°C. 
Each lot has been tested for sterility and absence of mycoplasma and bacteria.

Maintenance  

Keep refrigerated at +2°C to +8°C in the dark. Freezing and warming up to +37° C minimize the quality of the product. 
Do not heat the medium to more than 37° C or use uncontrollable sources of heat (e.g., microwave appliances). 
If only a part of the medium is to be used, remove this amount from the bottle and warm it up at room temperature.
Shelf life for any medium except for the basic medium is 8 weeks from the date of manufacture.

Freeze medium CM-ACF, serum free
Long-term storage
In biological research, the cryopreservation of mammalian cells is an invaluable tool. Successful preservation of cells is a top priority given that losing a cell line to contamination or improper storage conditions leads to lost time and money, ultimately delaying research results. Once the cells have been transferred from a cell growth medium to a freezing medium, the cells are typically frozen at a regulated rate and stored in liquid nitrogen vapor or at below -130°C in a mechanical deep freezer. The freeze medium CM-ACF enables cryopreservation of cells at below -130°C (or in liquid nitrogen), essentially eliminating the need for an additional, costly ultralow freezer and eliminating time-consuming and demanding controlled rate freezing processes. Simply collect the cells, aspirate the growth medium, resuspend in CM-ACF, transfer to a cryovial, and store the vial at below -130 °C.
Long shelf-life
CM-ACF is a serum-free, ready-to-use cryopreservation medium that can be stored in the refrigerator for up to one year.
Trusted by hundreds of researchers
Our advanced, serum-free cell freezing medium CM-ACF is a market-leading product in Germany and Europe and is distinguished by numerous publications involving hundreds of different cell lines worldwide. We tested it with more than 1000 cell lines from our proprietary cell bank.
Optimized serum-free ingredients
CM-ACF does not contain serum products. Serum-containing cryopreservation mediums have the disadvantage of fluctuating recovery rates and unclear composition. Since the composition and concentration of proteins and other biological components vary from batch to batch in serum, the reproducibility of experiments with cells that were frozen in a serum-containing medium may be compromised. As each component of CM-ACF is carefully defined, you can rest assured that cells always recover identically.

Contains DMSO, glucose, salts
Buffering capacity pH = 7.2 to 7.6

Universal
- even for stem cell preservation
All common cell lines can be frozen and thawed to yield many viable cells. Compared to standard media, the rate of recovery of even the most delicate cells is significantly higher. Using CM-ACF, we store over 1000 different cell lines with outstanding success.
Applications & Validation
The cells preserved in our CM-ACF freeze medium can be used for cell counting, viability and cryopreservation, cell culture, mammalian cell culture, gene expression analysis and genotyping, in vitro transcription, and polymerase chain reactions. Each batch's efficacy is evaluated using CHO-K1 cells. Each batch is tested for pH, osmolality, sterility, and endotoxins to ensure high quality.

PBS
Phosphate-Buffered Saline (PBS) Solution: The Optimal Buffer for Your Biological Research
Phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) is a versatile buffer solution used in many biological and chemical applications, as well as tissue processing. Our PBS solution is formulated with high-quality ingredients to ensure a constant pH during experiments. The osmolarity and ion concentrations of our PBS solution are matched to those of the human body, making it isotonic and non-toxic to most cells.
Composition of our PBS Solution
Our PBS solution is a pH-adjusted blend of ultrapure-grade phosphate buffers and saline solutions. At a 1X working concentration, it contains 137 mM NaCl, 2.7 mM KCl, 8 mM Na2HPO4, and 2 mM KH2PO4. We have chosen this composition based on CSHL protocols and Molecular cloning by Sambrook, which are well-established standards in the research community.
Applications of our PBS Solution
Our PBS solution is ideal for a wide range of applications in biological research. Its isotonic and non-toxic properties make it perfect for substance dilution and cell container rinsing. Our PBS solution with EDTA can also be used to disengage attached and clumped cells. However, it is important to note that divalent metals such as zinc cannot be added to PBS as this may result in precipitation. In such cases, Good's buffers are recommended. Moreover, our PBS solution has been shown to be an acceptable alternative to viral transport medium for the transport and storage of RNA viruses, such as SARS-CoV-2.
Storage of our PBS Solution
Our PBS solution can be stored at room temperature, making it easy to use and access.
To sum up
In summary, our PBS solution is an essential component in many biological and chemical experiments. Its isotonic and non-toxic properties make it suitable for numerous applications, from cell culture to viral transport medium. By choosing our high-quality PBS solution, researchers can optimize their experiments and ensure accurate and reliable results.
