- Support higher growth rates and culture densities
- Promote culture longevity and suppress apoptosis
- Support clone stability in continued passage
- Promote high product yield
- And many more.
Not only is the overall number of criteria growing, but in fact there are users who must consider many different features in specifying their production media. Read this informative paper to learn more about the many functions now desired from production media.
