islet specific tissue culture media. It is shipped separately as a frozen component to permit the extended shelf life of this media without the AB Serum. Once it is thawed and added to the media, it is recommended that the expiration date be considered to be 60 days from the date of the PIM(ABS) addition. It is collected, screened, and frozen until ready for cGMP manufacturing which includes heat inactivation followed by sterile filtration and bottle filling.
