Featured application

Media Fills for aseptic pharmaceutical manufacturing

 We understand the critical role media fills play in validation of your aseptic processes. We also understand they  are resource intense and require high quality media to ensure a smooth process. 


Thermo Scientific Cold Filterable media solutions ensure easy and user-friendly preparation. No heating is required to dissolve the media, with excellent solubility reducing the risk of blockages and therefore the level of production downtime required.

  • Pharmacopoeia (USP/EP) harmonized

  • BSE & mycoplasma free

  • Gamma-irradiated for sterility assurance
