Scientific resources


Gentamycin is resistent to cell culture temperature and pH. In contrast, penicillin and streptomycin are rapidly degraded. Adapted from Schafer et al., J. Appl. Microbiol., 1972.

Traditional antibiotics such as Penicillin / Streptomycin are still widely used in cell culture due to their low cost.

For short periods, they are able to maintain adequate activity. However, beyond 24 hours at the temperatures and pH found in cell culture, their activity decreases rapidly, increasing the chance of selecting resistant bacterial strains.

Where longer periods of activity are required, gentamycin (CnT-GAB10) is recommended.

CnT-ABM10 is provided in convenient, ready to use aliquots.

The use of antibiotics is only recommended during isolation and passage 1. They may disrupt cell bahaviour and are not recommended for use in subsequent passages, or in particular during challenging processes such as differentiation.
