Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) October 22, 2013
Jeevan BioSciences, Inc. (http://www.jeevanbiosciences.com) a start-up biotechnology company co-founded by Dr. Rodney Nash, PhD, a former Neuroscience Post-Doctoral Fellow at Emory University, today announces the commercial release of its first product Neuro – XTM Tissue Culture Media; the first 100% serum-free and xeno-free media product available on the market. Neuro-XTM is a proprietary patent pending chemically defined media specifically formulated for use in the growth of human cells and tissue without the need for serum or other animal products. The product was originally developed to support the growth of neuronal cells, but has been engineered to support the growth of multiple types of human cells including U87, HeLa, Neural progenitors, MCF7, Raji, A549, 143B, HS587T, PSCs, Cancer Stem Cells, Foreskin Fibroblasts, as well as MEF and 3T3 mouse cells. Researchers using Neuro-XTM are discovering that the product supports additional cell types on an almost weekly basis.
“It is well-known that serum is essentially a contaminant that significantly affects the ability to obtain reliable and reproducible results when it comes to cell culturing, and we knew that developing a serum-free and xeno-free media would solve this problem”, says Dr. Rodney Nash, CEO of Jeevan BioScience.
Neuro-XTM is a proprietary DMEM/F-12 base media that contains no animal-derived components or albumin, and efficiently grows all types of human cells and tissue including cancer cells, stem cells, neuronal cells, foreskin fibroblast, and muscle cells. The media also effectively grows mouse cells and other tissue as well. “We are excited about the possibilities when you consider the number of different cell types that Neuro-XTM supports”, continues Dr. Nash. “We constantly hear about additional cell typ
