AQIX® RS-I Medium

A ready-to-use transport and storage medium

  

AQIX® RS-I is a sterile, chemically defined and optimised media developed to provide a stable storage and shipping environment for both tissues and cells. AQIX is both fully defined, and serum and animal/human protein free. The media is isosmotic, isotonic and isoioinic with human serum and interstitial fluid and may be used at a variety of temperatures (eg: 2°C to 37°C), creating an homeostatic environment for maintaining isolated human cells, tissues and organs over hours or days, as required.

 

AQIX® RS-I utilises a novel, acid-base (pH) buffering system designed to mimic the natural, α-stat pH mechanism of the imidazole groups in haemoglobin operating in mammals and humans and provides an ideal fluid composition to retain the acid-base balance and integrity of human cells and tissues, thereby avoiding the issues of necrosis and apoptosis in cell and tissue samples post collection.


Life Science Production (LSP)  is the manufacturer and logistical partner of Aqix Ltd.  All orders for AQIX® RS-1 will be fulfilled by LSP.  We can accept orders by telephone on 01234 889180 or e-mail  sales@lifesciencegroup.co.uk

Applications

Cell culture, storage and transportation

  • Cell storage and transportation times of 12 – 120 hours  under ‘cold’ (0 – 4 °C) or ambient temperatures
  • Stable pH-buffering of pH 7.20 – 7.45 over 20 – 37 °C
  • Reproducibility of protocols
  • Ability to 'hold' stem cells during storage and delivery in differentiated format
  • Operates under aerobic or anaerobic conditions to accommodate all stem cell types
  • Suitable medium for use in cell culture containers currently used for transportation
  • Animal and Human serum free
  • Endotoxin levels conform to EU standards (≤0.025 EU/mL)
  • Solvent free e.g. DMSO
  • May be used to support all types of animal and human cells
 

Organs

  • Isosmotic and isioinic to serum and interstitial fluid
  • Suitable for the maintenance of functionality ex vivo of organs
  • Ideal as an organ flush fluid
  • Suitable as organ support medium for the support of organs under normothermic conditions
  • May be used to support all types of animal and human organs


Tissues

  • May be used to support all types of animal and human tissue
  • Ideal for functional support of fresh biopsied cells and tissues for up to 72 hours
  • Does not compromise genetic and histological profiles of cells or tissues
