Description

Application

Sodium pyruvate is used by cells as an easily accessible carbohydrate source. Additionally, it is involved with amino acid metabolism and initiates the Kreb′s cycle. The 100 mM solution should be diluted 1:100 for most cell culture applications.

Sodium pyruvate solution has been used in different type of cell culture media.

Cell Culture Protocol 3: Subculture of Adherent Cell Lines

Adherent cell lines will grow in vitro until they have covered the surface area available or the medium is depleted of nutrients. At this point the cell lines should be subcultured or passaged in ord...

Cell Culture Protocol 4: Subculture of Semi-Adherent Cell Lines

Some cell lines grow as a mixed population (e.g. B95-8 - marmoset) where a proportion of cells do not attach to the tissue culture flask and remain in suspension. Therefore, to maintain this heteroge...
