Media for the culturing of bone marrow aspirates and peripheral blood cells.

By culturing peripheral blood cells in the presence of mitogens, cytogeneticists obtain cultures that are used for chromosomal analysis.

Cytogenetics laboratories use short-term cultures of bone marrow aspirates not only for the diagnosis of hematopoietic disorders, but also for the prognosis of the specific tumors and the selection of effective treatments. Irvine Scientific’s CHANG Marrow® and CHANG BMC® are optimized for short-term bone marrow culture, and provide consistent mitotic cells that are suitable for karyotyping and a more accurate cytogenetic analysis.
