Amniochrome Media for Cytogenetics
- Specialized culure medium for prenatal diagnostics
- Rigourous QC ensures reliable performance
Aminiochrome karyotyping media
Amniochrome™ Media are intended for use in in vitro diagnostic testing procedures . Amniochrome has been designed for establishing primary cultures of human amniotic fluid cells (AFC) and chorionic villus samples (CVS), which may then be used in karyotyping, fluorescence in-situ hybridisation (FISH) and other cytogenetic procedures. The media have been rigorously QC-tested by a leading European clinical cytogenetic diagnostic reference laboratory for this application, which ensures their reliable performance.
Amniochrome Plus and Amniochrome Pro media
Amniochrome™ Plus and Pro Media are supplied frozen, ready-to-use and already contain antibiotics, L-glutamine and FBS, hormone and growth factors for convenience. The media are buffered with Sodium Bicarbonate and Phenol Red is present as a pH indicator. The complete formulation reduces the chance of technical error and culture contamination. In addition, the media support more efficient cell attachment and cell growth resulting in early chromosome analysis.
Amniochrome II Modified Complete Medium
Amniochrome™ II Modified consists of a refrigerated basal medium and a frozen supplement. The final medium already contains antibiotics, L-glutamine and FBS, hormone and growth factors. Amniochrome II Modified is buffered with Sodium Bicarbonate and HEPES. Phenol Red is present as a pH Indicator.
