Gibco CTS LV-MAX Production Medium is a chemically-defined, serum-free, protein-free medium validated for recombinant lentiviral vector production. In addition to supporting high cell density suspension cultures of CTS Viral Production Cells (HEK293F-derived cells), this medium is suitable for preclinical-, clinical-, and commercial-scale transient transfection and lentiviral production when used with the CTS LV-MAX Transfection Kit. CTS LV-MAX Production Medium undergoes stringent QC testing to ensure it is appropriate for the manufacturing of cell and gene therapy applications.

CTS LV-MAX Production Medium may be applicable for other recombinant viral vector production that uses a HEK293 medium.

CTS LV-MAX Production Medium features include:
• Supports CTS Viral Production Cells to achieve densities of over 1 x 107 cells/mL with minimal cell clumping
• Enables high viral titers of up to 1 x 108 TU/mL (unconcentrated lentiviral vectors–GFP)
• Scalable protocol for 96-deep well blocks, flasks, and bioreactors
• Regulatory-compliant medium manufactured in conformity with cGMP for medical devices, 21 CFR, Part 820, and certified to the ISO 13485. Drug Master File and Regulatory Support File available upon request.

CTS LV-MAX Production Medium is formulated with GlutaMAX-I reagent. It is ready to use, with no supplementation required. The chemically defined formulation results in high reproducibility and lot-to-lot reliability. The medium contains no human or animal-origin components. It is not recommended for adherent cell cultures. The formulation of this product is identical to research-grade LV-MAX Production Medium, but CTS LV-MAX Production Medium is validated for clinical and commercial therapeutic applications.

Custom configuration and packaging available upon request.
