Media supplements and feeds

Our peptones, chemically defined supplements and feeds are designed to enhance complex media formuatoils. Our products have been used in both batch, fed-batch and profusion processes.

Animal-free peptones
Animal-free peptones have been successfully used to enhance the performance of basal or platform media, while offering a lower risk alternative to animal-based supplements. Our unique blends of  yeast and soy peptones, which are high in carbohydrates and amino acids,  provide essential nutrients to increase cell culture performance and protein production across a variety of cell lines and applications, including the production of vaccines, monoclonal antibodies, and biosimilars. As importantly, our stringent manufacturing and quality control procedures help to reduce variability to give you a more consistent product.
