Further, InVitria will be hosting a pizza party where attendees can learn more about InVitria's completely animal free and high performance product line. Visitors to InVitria's exhibit booth #1011 can pick up an invitation to the pizza party and learn more about InVitria's exciting product line.
Zap-CHO is a defined and animal free CHO (Chinese hamster ovaries) cell culture supplement capable of replacing fetal bovine serum (FBS) while still maintaining maximum cell performance. Zap-CHO is also an alternative to using hydrolysates in cell culture media optimization because it is a well-defined supplement which reduces variability and production failures. Zap-CHO is ideal for use with commercial, chemically-defined and serum- and animal free cell culture media formulations.
Optiferrin is a cell culture media supplement which supports cell growth by regulating the amount of iron transported to the cell. Since iron is required for healthy cell culture performance, it is a critical component to reach optimal performance. InVitria's Optiferrin is animal free, so it is a safe and effective alternative to using iron chelators and elemental iron in media formulations. InVitria customers have utilized Optiferrin to provide the essential amount of iron for optimal results.
