IGF-1 Insulin Applicaton

IGF-1 insulin growth factor is widely used in cell culture to enhance cell proliferation, cell growth, and cell differentiation.

IGF Insulin Recommended Method

It is recommended to centrifuge the powder to the bottom of the tube before opening the lid, then dissolve it in sterilized deionized water to prepare a storage solution of 100 μg/ml. The IGF-1 insulin growth factor can be stored stably for 2 weeks at 2℃ ~ 8℃. When diluted to a lower concentration (not less than 10μg/ml), 0.1% tissue culture grade BSA or HSA is required. If it is necessary to extend the storage time, it is recommended to freeze the recombinant IGF1 product at -80℃ or -20℃ rather than multigelation. This product should be determined by experiment to determine the optimum concentration according to each specific application.
