Culture of bacteria, such as Escherichia coli (E. coli), requires specific formulations of growth media for use in cloning, plasmid DNA preparation, and protein expression. We offer a selection of bacterial growth media for your specific application.

Choose your type of bacterial growth media:

Gibco Bacto CD Supreme Fermentation Production Medium (FPM)Chemically defined dry powder medium designed specifically for fermentation applications to support high-cell-density cultures of E. coli strains
LB Broth and LB AgarMost referenced bacterial media for growth and maintenance of recombinant E. coli strains 
Terrific BrothNutritionally rich bacterial media for higher density growth and maintenance of recombinant E. coli strains
M9 MinimalCommonly used bacterial media for cultivation and maintenance of E. coli strains.
MagicMedia MediumCustomized bacterial media for growth of T7-regulated E. coli strains for auto induction of protein expression
ImMedia MediumPre-mixed, pre-sterilized bacterial media containing selection antibiotics for growth of E. coli strains
Other MediaMicrobial media for outgrowth of transformed E. coli cells (S.O.C. Medium), solid microbial media (Invitrogen™ Select Agar™), and growth of hosts for replication of M13 vectors (2-YT Broth)
