Custom Media Overview



Accelerating the Evolution of Media Manufacturing

Our custom media manufacturing services range from raw material supply, specialty cell culture media solutions, labeling, and packaging, to make-your-own media for commercialization. Backed by 35 years of experience in custom media development, our state-of-the-art cGMP-compliant manufacturing facilities are ISO-certified, with the highest levels of quality management systems in place. It is this level of unmatched commitment to quality along with our strong history of innovation and in-house scientific expertise that defines BI's Culture of Excellence.

Our media is manufactured following cGMP and FDA guidelines in ISO 9001- and ISO 13485-certified clean rooms. Standard QC testing is conducted on all batches of media and custom orders are typically completed in 4 to 8 weeks.
