Optimized formulations, increased consistency
Serum-free and serum-replacement medium formulations have become essential for the future growth of the biotechnology industries. The elimination of animal serum-borne components aims to advance standardization, consistency and to reduce risk of contamination by serum-borne adventitious agents in cell culture processes. Serum-free media and reagents have a wide range of applications, including production of monoclonal antibodies, viral antigens, and recombinant proteins using a variety of mammalian and invertebrate cell lines. Serum-free media and reagents introduce improved control of cell culture conditions, increased lot-to-lot consistency, and optimized formulations for specific cell types.
