Cell Culture Media and Supplements

The process of cell culture involves growing and maintaining cells outside of their natural environment. Cell culture media and supplements are critical for supporting the maintenance and growth of cells in vitro, such as by maintaining extracellular pH. Essential components of cell culture media include carbohydrates, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, and a pH buffer system. Your choice of media can affect the accuracy, reproducibility, and relevance of your experimental results. Selecting the right media and supplements is an important step in any experiments that require cell culture.

Specialized Cell Culture Media and Supplements

Not all cells are equal and different cell types require different in vitro culture conditions to achieve optimal growth and performance. Our specialized cell culture media and supplements are optimized for specific cell or tissue types and applications, such as cell maintenance, expansion, differentiation, functional assays, and more. Whether you are working with cells isolated from human tissues or from other species, our cell culture media and supplements fit into every step of your experimental workflow.

You can also find specialized cell culture media and supplements for hybridoma generation and cell line development, and for culturing mammary cells, pancreatic cells, hepatic cells, muscle cells, endothelial cells, and more.
