Innovative media for reliable cytogenetic studies

Capricorn Scientific is a German manufacturer of cell culture products. Our CE marked products LymphoPrime, MarrowPrime and AmnioPrime are complete media especially developed for cytogenetic studies and in vitro diagnostic procedures.

These media have been shown to be homogeneous, safe, reliable and to give high performance and reproducible results in numerous studies.



is an optimised complete medium for the cultivation of lymphocytes from peripheral blood for karyotyping studies. The mitogen Phytohemagglutinin (PHA) and the pre-tested Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS) from Capricorn Scientific are the two most important growth determining factors in this medium. Maximum stimulation of lymphocytes and cell division rates are obtained through the optimal PHA concentration.



was developed to optimise the handling of primary bone marrow and leukemic cells. A complex combination of MEM Alpha Modification medium, antibiotics, L-Glutamine, FBS, hormones and other growth factors has been optimised to produce maximal cell attachment and growth rates.



was designed for in vitro stimulation of human primary amnion and chorionic villi cells which are used in prenatal diagnostic studies. This medium provides maximum cell attachment and growth, and pH stability. Excellent metaphase yields are hereby achieved. The use of AmnioPrime has been shown to provide an optimal balance between the need for rapid diagnostic results and the need to minimise chromosome breakages during the cell culture process.
