Fast pilot-scale media manufacturing services

We offer small batch, custom media manufacturing solutions for research and process development to accelerate your media development and scale up.

Utilizing our dedicated non-GMP labs and cGMP-quality raw materials and processes our team can provide media manufacturing expertise in liquids, dry powder media (DPM), and our proprietary Advanced Granulation Technology (AGT) media format.

Test the manufacturability and scalability of your formulation or modify existing formulations by adding novel components or reducing components not driving cell culture performance. In preparation for cGMP scale up, our team can convert your formulation to a new media format to better suit your scale-up needs. We can also provide details to help you validate us as a secondary supply source.

Our experienced team will help ensure your formulation is consistent and scalable, streamlining your transfer to our cGMP manufacturing facility when you are ready.

Our Gibco Rapid Prototyping Service also features:

  • cGMP-quality raw materials and processes for easy transfer to cGMP scale
  • Liquid, DPM, and AGT formats—available with batches up to 200 L or 10 kg (DPM)
  • Rapid lead times—standard orders are typically shipped within 10–20 working days
