IVY medium is free of serum, animal components and hydrolysates. The medium is developed for maximal viral vector replication and transient expression in suspension cells. HEK293 suspension cells have been carried for more than 6 months in IVY medium with no loss of viability.
IVY medium is easy-to-use and suitable for suspension cultures. It requires only minimal or no adaptation from other serum-free media..
Developed to maximize HEK293 cells for transient expression and viral vector replication. The medium provides equivalent of higher growth of HEK293 cells when compared to serum-containing medium. The medium offers
Simplicity: Ideal from bench to manufacturing scale.
Serum-free and animal component free: Reduces the risk for animal derived contaminants.
Fully defined: It doesn’t contain hydrolysates or other complex additives. Thus, process variability is reduced.
Antibiotic-free: No risk of antibiotic traces, hidden contamination and endotoxins.
IVY medium is dedicated to maximal production of wide range of viral vectors, e.g. adeno viral vectors, AAV vectors, lenti viral vectors.
IVY is particularly suitable for transfection with polyethylene imine (PEI) and other DNA complexing agents.
IVY is not suitable for viral infections and protein production with stable gene expression. For this application we have developed the special medium ORCHID.
Regulatory: Serum-free, animal component free, hydrolysate free,
