The most advanced media format available for cell culture

With today’s high application demands for increased productivity, efficiency and safety, you need an advanced media format that exceeds traditional dry format performance and accelerates time to market with proven success in commercial products. Leave the classical dry media concerns of complicated preparation, filtration difficulties, multistep processes and lot inconsistency behind and start achieving more with Gibco Advanced Granulation Technology (AGT) media format.

Because not all dry media are equal

AGT is a granular dry media format produced through a technologically advanced process which allows manufacturing of complete formulations in a variety of serum-free, protein-free and chemically-defined media in a dry format. The AGT granules dissolve rapidly for faster media preparation time versus conventional dry powder media. Furthermore, AGT is efficient by nature, in that it is a complete medium that is pH and osmolality pre-adjusted, and offers all the benefits of liquid media without the cost, storage and transportation issues.

AGT offers high consistency and productivity across all of your stages of production: from development to commercial manufacturing.

Incorporating AGT into your processes:

  • Enables increased productivity with reduced downtime
  • Reduces costs by eliminating the need for multiple raw materials and filters
  • Accelerates time to market with ease of scale-up and proven success in commercial products
  • Helps mitigate risk with multiple production facilities

AGT media can therefore help reduce your total cycle costs, decreasing time involved in raw material planning, procurement and testing as well as media preparation. These benefits are all realized while maintaining comparable cell growth to liquid media.


The AGT process allows production of complete, complex, chemically-defined, serum-free, and protein-free media in a dry format that is easy to use and easy to scale up. The following Gibco catalog cell culture media are available in AGT format off-the-shelf, and your own custom formulation can be manufactured in AGT format on a make-to-order basis.
