Application

L-Glutamine is an essential amino acid that is a crucial component of culture media that serves as a major energy source for cells in culture. L-Glutamine is very stable as a dry powder and as a frozen solution. In liquid media or stock solutions, however, L-Glutamine degrades relatively rapidly. Optimal cell performance usually requires supplementation of the media with L-Glutamine prior to use.

  3. What is the Department of Transportation shipping information for this product?

    Transportation information can be found in Section 14 of the product's (M)SDS.To access the shipping information for this material, use the link on the product detail page for the product. 

  4. Is the molecular weight of L-Glutamine 146.14 or 146.15? The label information changed.

    Based on a molecular formula of C5H10N2O3, the molecular weight to seven significant figures is 146.1456. Over the years, this value may have been reported in Sigma-Aldrich documentation or on labels as either 146.15 (by rounding up) or 146.14 (by truncation). The material itself has not changed.
