BSK-H Borrelia Growthmedium with L-Glutamine
We can deliver, Europe-wide. We can deliver in Europe.
Advantages of the BSK-H medium:
High protein, peptide, nucleoside and vitamin content
Constant cell growth batch after batch
BSK-H medium is recommended by the DMSZ.
BSK-H medium is a high quality, specific "ready-to-use" medium for extensive cultivation/isolation of spirochaetes (such as Borrelia spec., especially B. burgdorferi and B. hermsi).
Does not contain rabbit serum.
The "ready-to-use" BSK-H should be supplemented with 3-8% rabbit serum.
Important: BSK-H medium pre-supplemented with rabbit serum at the time of purchase is not recommended under any circumstances. Since the serum is unknown to the customer as the most problematic ingredient in such a case, the researcher has no possibility to intervene or manipulate the medium in case of growth difficulties.
A reproduction of experiments with 2 different batches is not possible.
For these reasons, we do not offer such a formulation.
Rabbit serum can be obtained from Bio&SELL here. We can currently deliver!
More information about Borrelia culture with BSK-H medium
BSK-H medium is a highly complex formulation with a very high content of proteins and peptides. It is particularly rich in nucleosides (nucleobase and pentose, no phosphate residues), has glucose as an energy source and a high content of vitamins. BSK-H medium contains N-acetyl-D-glucosamine, which is the essential element of bacterial peptidoglycan.
Specific galenics and precise production processes guarantee you a BSK-H medium of the highest quality and purity from batch to batch. And thus always a constant reproductive cell growth.
The sufficient amount of HEPES in the BSK-H medium keeps the buffer capacity stable over a long period of time.
Storage temp.: +2°C to +8°C
