Biowest offers non-pyrogenic water suitable for dissolving cell culture media powders or preparing all the necessary reagents for cell culture.
The most common pyrogens are endotoxins, which are lipopolysaccharides (LPS) produced by Gram-negative bacteria such as E. coli. The presence of these molecules in cell culture reagents, as well as in media or buffers, can modify the biological effect/response of cells, particularly in the field of immunology. The use of pyrogen-free water in cellular applications avoids the impact of endotoxins.
Other packaging options are available upon request.
