L-glutamine is a necessary amino acid that plays a key role in culture media and provides a significant amount of energy for cells in culture.
Mostly as a frozen solution and as a dry powder, L-glutamine is exceedingly stable. However, L-glutamine degrades rather quickly in liquid medium or stock solutions. Cells may be harmed by the toxic breakdown products of L-glutamine (ammonium ions).
We supply our L-Glutamine Solution as a frozen item to prevent deterioration. Supplementation shortly prior to usage is often necessary for optimal cell function. Water suitable for cell cultivation is used to make this mixture.
