KREAvital Lymphocyte Karyotyping Medium (including PHA)KBI-90021
KREAvital Lymphocyte Karyotyping Medium is intended for use in short-term cultivation of peripheral blood lymphocytes for chromosome evaluation. It is based on RPMI-1640 basal medium supplemented with L-Glutamine, foetal bovine serum and antibiotics. We provide this medium with and without the addition of phytohaemagglutinin (PHA), respectively. Phytohaemagglutinin (PHA) is a lectin found in plants, especially beans. It has a number of physiological effects and is used in medical research to trigger cell division in T-lymphocytes. In this function, PHA is the most commonly used agent to induce mitosis in nondividing cells, such as lymphocytes and mature cells. Our PHA is provided as the mucoprotein form (PHA-M). It is supplied sterile, in a lyophilized form for constituting 5 ml of solution.
