IV-Cell universal culture media is a Research-use only (RUO), ready-to-use, fully supplemented medium developed specifically to support bone marrow and peripheral blood cell culture for in vitro cytogenetic analysis of hematological disease. IV-Cell is a proprietary culture media that enables simultaneous culturing of all four (4) hematopoietic cell lineages to solve the problem of selective culturing.
IV-Cell enables the simultaneous culturing of all 4 hematopoietic cell lineages:
Increases Clinical Accuracy – more accurate diagnosis by allowing simultaneous culturing of multiple cell lineages
All-in-one media – includes: serum protein, media base, growth hormones, enhancers, B-Cell mitogen, T-Cell mitogens, and Plasma-Cell mitogens
Reduces errors – reduces errors caused by eliminating media cocktailing of multiple components and errors in selection of growth factors to use per culture
Improves inventory management – by replacing 5-6 SKUs with one
Reduces labor costs – Higher banding resolution results in a reduction of approximately 30 mins for each karyotype & increased auto-scanner productivity (see below). Reduces QC tasks – one SKUs to validate/QC with each lot change vs. 5-6 SKUs
Cost Savings – Facilitate competitive price resulting in higher margins to laboratory
