Key features and details

FastGro is a fully define medium that allows culturing cells in vitro without the use of serum and without any animal or human derived compound.

SKU: 0926400-CF

Product Description

FastGro allows culturing cells in vitro without the use of serum and without any animal or human derived compound. FastGro is a fully defined additive, avoiding the need for serum, for a wide range of cell culture practices. Since FastGro is chemically defined it avoids lot-to-lot variations. All components in FastGro are highly purified and identified chemical compounds.

FastGro is available in 100 mL and 500 mL package size.

Culturing cells in a FastGro enriched medium represents a number of benefits as compared to conventional FBS enriched media.

  • Due to its chemically defined nature there are no lot-to-lot variations. This skips the need for testing new batches of serum.
  • There is no interference of unknown serum compounds in your research.
  • Since it doesn't contain hormones nor cytokines it doesn't bias your research data.
  • FastGro is save in use, since it doesn't contain animal or human derived materials.
  • It can be stored in the refrigerator. No need for thawing before use.


FastGro is easy to use:

Just add FastGro to your culture medium as you do with FBS (usually 10%). To shift from FBS containing media to FastGro containing medium we advise to follow the step-by-step weaning of the cells.

Examples of cells which have successfully been cultured on FastGro enriched medium:

  • Liver epithelial cells
  • HaCaT
  • Primary human hepatocytes
  • Hybridoma
  • VERO
  • HEK293
  • CHO
  • HEP G2
  • HeLa
  • Human keratinocytes
