ACF, Chemically Defined
Prime media use animal component free factors to improve retention of proliferative progenitor cells, and co-factors to improve growth-factor binding. Most media are chemically defined, for maximal control of your experimental environment.
The factors and co-factors in Prime media
Reliable & Clinically Upgradeable
Reliability is critical for clinical use. Fully defined media with certified, animal-free components are easily upgraded for clinical applications, whilst an 8-point process minimizes variation.
Reliable and Upgradeable
Proliferation media do not deliver great differentiation, co-culture or aging. Finely tuned media significantly improve specialist behaviours.
Fine tuning specialty media
One bottle, one box shipping, one-step preparation, and one-source products and protocols for 2D and 3D culture.
The benefits of simplicity
Recent Praise for CnT-Prime Media!
“We have tested several commercially available media for selection and growth of human airway epithelial cells and in our hands the CnT-Prime Airway medium is the best in class” – [Dr Sean Hall, Department of Clinical Research, University Hospital Bern]
Evolution of CnT-Prime media
The Prime family of media contains a range of mainly animal component free and chemically defined media for a wide range cell types including epithelia, fibroblasts, MSCs, melanocytes and endothelia. For more info about how they compare with our previous PCT media, please see the following link:
