MP Biomedicals manufactures and supplies an excellent selection of E.coli growth media for almost any molecular biology application. Specialty, high yield formulations, tried -and-true LB Agar, and even basic ingredients of growth media are available in multiple formats. Each recipe is subjected to extensive quantitative testing an dis Molecular Biology Certified through qualitative tests such as cell density and plasmid yield. For ultimate yield and convenience, our patented media capsules eliminate the waste, inaccuracies, and mess associated with weighing out bulk powder. Pre-mixed powders are also available in single-use or in larger bottles and drums. We also offer liquid media, pre-poured plates and custom packaging options.
MP Biomedicals is a leading provider of high quality pre-mixed media formulations for culturing yeasts - S. cerevisiare and S.pombe. Our wide range of yeast nitrogen bases, sugars and amino acid dropout mixtures can be mixed together to form almost any complete media. General media formulations include YPD/YEPD, YEP, YE and YES mixtures. Both synthetic and minimal defined media formulations are also available. We offer these media in convenient and custom formulations.
Synthetic Defined Yeast Media includes all necessary components for selective growth of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. MP Biomedicals offers Synthetic Defined broth (SD) and Synthetic Defined Agar (SDA) in a variety of formats for flexibility and convenience.Synthetic Defined Media (SD) can be ordered in a number of ways:
A complete SD or SDA A Drop Out Base (DOB) or Drop Out Base with Agar (DOBA) plus the appropriate amino acid supplement mixture (CSM) A Yeast Nitrogen Base (YNB), a carbon source, the appropriate amino acid supplement mixture(CSM), and agar if desired All raw materials separately.
Zymolyase 20T and 100T are used to lyse living yeast cell walls to produce protoplast or spheroplast of various strains of yeast cells. It may also be used for glucan hydrolysis. The primary enzyme in this preparation responsible for lysis of viable yeast cells in ß-1,3-glucan laminaripentaohydrolase. It hydrolyzes glucose polymers at the ß-1,3-glucan linkages releasing laminaripentaose as the principal product.
Zymolyase is an enzyme preparation from a submerged culture of Arthrobacter luteus which effectively lyses cell walls of viable yeast cells. This enzyme is offered in two different concentrations:
20T - This preparation is a lyophilized powder prepared by salting out from the culture fluid with ammonium sulfate and contains 20,000 units enzyme/g.
100T - This preparation is lyophilized enzyme partially purified by affinity chromatography and contains 100,000 units enzyme/g.
MP Biomedicals offers the highest quality and a broad range in mammalian cell culture media, serum free media, supplements and antibiotics. Our products have been highly validated and cited in scientific publications which provides you the confidence in your research results.
Classical media in powdered and liquid formats for mammalian cell culture applications
The cell culture media products are designed to support optimal cell growth under defined conditions. These products offer the best performance for your cells and are guaranteed to be of the highest quality and consistency.
Our media guarantees your satisfaction:
All products undergo rigorous quality control testing and are tested for endotoxin and toxicity.
Salt solutions are produced without sodium bicarbonate to increase stability.
1X McCoy 5A Medium (Park and Terasaki Modification) without L-glutamine
This medium supports the growth of primary cultures derived from normal bone marrow, testes, mouse kidney, skin, gingiva, rat embryo and other tissues. MP's media are also suited for the propagation of leukocytes, biopsy tissues and the most demanding primary and continuous cell types.
Medium 199 with Earl's Salts (E199)
Medium 199 can be used with a broad range of species including the culturing of non-transformed cell types. It may be used for vaccine production and the in vitro cultivation of rat lens tissues and primary mouse pancreatic epithelial explants. It is available in either Earle's or Hank's salts.
The use of fetal bovine serum in cell culture media can lead to concerns arising from biological contamination, higher complexity in assays and downstream purification. Additionally, lot-to-lot variation in performance impacts sourcing and testing. MP Biomedicals wide range of Serum Free products puts your mind at ease when it comes to cell culture. Our serum free products are:
Well defined with minimal variability
Better control and consistent performance
Ideal for evaluation of cellular functions in assays
Preserve your serum free cell line - Cellvation™
Cellvation™ is a cryopreservation medium which contains neither DMSO nor Serum and is ideally suited for serum-free cultures. Cellvation™ offers
Optimal recovery and faster cell attachment
Suitability for all types of serum-dependent cell lines
ChromatoPur™ proteins have been purified by chromatography and ensure the highest purity, consistency and activity in cell culture. Unlike with other extraction procedures (e.g. Cohn, Heat Shock) ChromatoPur™ proteins are more biologically intact and highly retain their cell growth stimulating activity. Proteins are purified from New Zealand sourced material using cGMP in an ISO 9001 certified facility which is audited by NZFSA-MAF. ChromatoPur™ proteins offers:
Superior performance over Cohn's Albumin Fraction V
Supplemental nutrients and reagents are essential for many cell cultures. Additives such as antibiotics and buffers are frequently used to prevent bacterial contamination, control pH and monitor culture conditions. Amino acids and vitamins are useful for enriched media.
MP Biomedicals offers a wide choice of media supplements to meet your cell culture needs (see our web site for complete listing of media supplements).
Along with our Plant & Insect nucleic acid purification kits we are pleased to offer an accompanying line of cell culture media. Our plant cell culture medias come in the standard Murashige & Skoog, Gamborg's, and Chu's formulations. Additionally, we also offer specialized plant cell culture media and tools.
For years, insect cell culture has been an important tool in molecular biology research, particularly for those involved in Drosophila research. Our line of CELLect insect cell culture media offers the insect biologist a range of options for their samples.
