Ensuring adequate cell growth relies on many culture conditions, including the correct media formulation for your cell line. To support cell growth, basal or complex media can be refined and enriched with supplements such as amino acids, vitamins, lipids, antibioitcs, and serum. Our cell culture supplements and reagents are backed our superior customer service and commitment to quality.
Protect valuable cell line stocks by choosing reagents that are designed to protect cells during ultralow temperature storage. Our DMSO selection is application-tested, and ready-to-use cell freezing media are available in DMSO-free and in variable DMSO concentrations.
Plant tissue culture reagents, including gelling agents, plant growth regulators, auxins, cytokinins, and other supplements for supporting the growth and development of plant cells and tissues in culture.
Enzymes like trypsin and collagenase are essential for the detachment of adherent cells and solid tissues for subculture and experiments. Recombinant trypsin, solutions containing EDTA, and non-enzymatic solutions provide stabler, gentler options for wider culture applications.
Albumin is used in vitro to bind, sequester and stabilize a range of important small molecules and proteins. We provide bovine and human serum albumins and transport protein reagents for diverse applications, including cell culture, protein quantitation, and antibody-related studies.
Select hormones have growth-promoting effects on cells. Essential cell culture-grade hormone supplements include dexamethasone, erythropoietin, β-Estradiol, glucagon, hydrocortisone, insulin, progesterone, prostaglandin E1 & E2.
Cell culture supplements enable the customization of media with defined characteristics to support specific applications and serum-free culture needs. Our culture-grade supplements include ITS formulations, amino acids, vitamins, antibiotics, and reagents qualified for hybridoma and insect cell culture.
Origin-certified, quality-controlled cell culture sera include FBS, other bovine sera, human serum, and sera from diverse animal species, rigorously screened for contaminants and performance-tested in culture.
Human serum is used to culture human cells and is available as plasma-derived AB human serum, clotted whole blood AB human serum, heat inactivated preparations, and complement-depleted preparations.
Attachment factors mimicking the extracellular matrix (ECM) provide important cues to cultured cells that stimulate physiological growth and behavior. A wide array of biological and synthetic polymers can be selected to enhance cell culture conditions.
Cytokines and growth factors are critical cell culture media components, particularly when serum-and animal-free conditions or defined media are required. We offer hundreds of purified, recombinant growth factors and cytokines for proliferation, differentiation, angiogenesis studies, and more.
