Corning cellgro® COMPLETE® is a proprietary serum-free and low-protein formulation based on a 50/50 mix of DMEM/F12 and smaller percentages of RPMI 1640 and McCoy's 5A that does not contain any insulin, transferrin, cholesterol, growth or attachment factors. A mixture of trace elements and high molecular weight carbohydrates, extra vitamins, a non-animal protein source, and a small amount of high quality bovine serum albumin (1 g/L) supports superior growth and viability over long-term passages of hybridomas, suspension, and adherent cultures. cellgro® COMPLETE® requires minimal adaptation and facilitates adaptation of adherent-dependent cells to high-density suspension cultures.
cellgro® FREE® does not contain any hormones or growth factors. This medium is optimized for the cultivation of Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) cells in addition to many derivatives of this parent line. cellgro® FREE® supports superior growth and viability over long-term passages in both adherent and suspension culture.
