Cell Culture Media, Serum, and Supplements

Cell culture is a basic laboratory technique that allows the maintentance and growth of living cells outside of the animal or plant where they occur naturally. Successful cell culture provides cell population-optimized base media, supplements, and growth factors that mimic in vivo conditions.


Base Media and Supplements

We offer base media (e.g. DMEM, MEM, RPMI) in multiple formulations to give you choices in glucose, L-glutamine, HEPES, NEAA, nucleosides, phenol red, and sodium pyruvate content. We also develop and manufacture cryopreservation media and supplements for specialty cell culture.


Serum Products

We offer multiple grades of US origin FBS to support a variety of applications including embryonic stem cell and hybridoma culture. We also offer Tet tested, charcoal/dextran treated, and dialyzed grades with reduced levels of particular molecules. Our free sample and lot reservation programs help you identify and count on the best production lot for your experiments.

Cultrex Ready BME

Basement Membrane Extracts and ECM

Promote robust cell growth, viability, and the development of 3D culture systems. We offer a variety of Cultrex™ membrane extracts, extracellular matrix products as well as purified ECM proteins and ECM pre-coated plates.


Recombinant Proteins, Cytokines, and Growth Factors

Our recombinant cytokines and growth factors set the industry standard based on their premium quality, high bioactivity, and lot-to-lot consistency. We also produce GMP proteins for ex vivo cell manufacturing and ProDots™ proteins that reduce aliquoting and media preparation time.

Custom Cell Culture Reagents

Leverage our expertise with recombinant proteins and small molecules and let us provide you with customized media developed to your specifications. Inquire about our media manufacturing, formulation, and optimization as well as specialty cell culture media testing.
