Serum-Free Media Supplement
A patented, non-toxic culture media supplement that acts as an effective “cell booster”.
City-Mix™ is composed of a specific formulation of inert, food-safe, and bio-sustainable macromolecules with the unique capacity to mimic naturally crowded environments and highly efficient bioprocesses within living organisms.
By occupying space within aqueous solutions, macromolecular crowders create volume-exclusion effects shown to enhance the thermodynamic activity and stability of biomolecules such as proteins. This means that City-Mix™ can effectively boost the performance of a wide variety of cell cultures by promoting the bioactivity and/or bioavailability of growth factors, protein carriers, and enzymes contained within the culture medium.
By mimicking the in vivo environment we see several important changes in cell behaviour, namely;
Cellular proliferation rates increase, significantly increasing yield.
Less supplements are required, reducing the need for expensive growth factors and recombinant proteins.
Facilitates tissues production via extracellular matrix establishment.
Helps reduce or eliminate the need for animal-derived ingredients (e.g., FBS, albumin) while maintaining media performance.
