NEAA Cell Culture Supplement is a 100× stock solution containing 7 nonessential amino acids. It is used as a supplement to cell culture media for optimized cell growth. Most cells can synthesize non-essential amino acids (NEAA) through glucoaminolysis, glycolysis, or the TCA cycle. When concentrations of these amino acids are low, cells need to consume more glucose and glutamine in the media, and produce excess byproducts, which might affect cell growth. Adding NEAA into cell culture media can mitigate the potential side effects caused by self-production of these non-essential amino acids. The product is intended for laboratory research use only. It is not intended for diagnostic, therapeutic, clinical, household, or any other applications.
Standard evaluation includes:
1. Sterility test (bacteria, fungi and mycoplasma)
2. pH test
Storage and Shipping
- Store at 2-8 °C for up to one year.
- Avoid repeated warm-cooling and freeze-thawing for optimal performance.
The seven amino acids are resolved in pH 1.5~1.7 HCl solution.
Amino Acids Concentration (mg/l)
L-Aspartic acid 1330
