Neurobasal™ Medium Minus Phenol Red is a basal media that meets the special requirements of pre-natal and embryonic neuronal cells when used with GIBCO™ B-27™ Supplement, but without Phenol Red. Neurobasal™ Medium can be used to grow neuronal cells from hippocampus, cortex and other regions of the brain. Neurobasal™ Medium allows for both long and short term maintenance of homogeneous populations of neuronal cells without the need of an astrocyte feeder layer.

Use Neurobasal™ Medium Minus Phenol Red for applications in which the presence of Phenol Red will interfere with your results.

Add Your Own Supplements
All Neurobasal™ media contain no L-glutamine, L-glutamic acid, or aspartic acid. Neurobasal™ media must be supplemented with 0.5 mM L-glutamine or GlutaMAX™-I Supplement and either a serum-free supplement (such as B-27™ Supplement or N-2 Supplement), or with serum. For initial plating, you should add 25μM glutamic acid.

Quality Control Testing
All Neurobasal™ media are tested for pH, osmolality, endotoxin, and the absence of bacterial and fungal contamination.

We also provide Neurobasal™ Medium with Phenol Red.

Neurobasal™ Medium is optimized for pre-natal and embryonic neurons. For growing post-natal and adult brain neurons, we provide Neurobasal™-A Medium
