Serum free Media (SFM)

35,000.00

The APS Serum-Reduced Medium (SRM) system is designed to support vaccine manufacture under serum-reduced or serum-free conditions for cell types traditionally cultured in classical media with 10% serum. With this system, human diploid cells, such as can be grown with just 1–2% serum. Additionally, it supports growth of chicken embryo fibroblasts under serum-free conditions. Virus production can then be conducted under serum-free conditions without the addition of albumin or other supplements.

1. APS Serum-Reduced Medium (SRM): A basal medium up to 100X growth supplement designed for cell expansion
2. APS Serum-Free Medium (SFM): A basal medium up to 100X production supplement designed for virus production. Human cells have traditionally been used to manufacture a variety of vaccines, such as the varicella zoster, polio, smallpox, hepatitis A, measles, mumps, and rubella vaccines. Traditionally, the only way to culture these cells has been to use classical media with 10% serum for growth and 1–5% human albumin (human sourced or recombinant) for virus production.
