Accelerate Growth Medium Optimization

Irvine Scientific’s CHO Media Development Kit allows you to create a formulation development strategy that fits with your project timeline, resources, and goals. The media in the panel have been fully engineered for full GMP scale, which can shorten development time from the kit to GMP manufactured product. The media are also designed for use in a general media screen evaluation or as a basis for further development by way of an experimental design approach.

The CHO Media Development Kit consists of four diverse media that are:
  • Chemically-defined growth media
  • Animal component-free
  • Developed independently of each other
  • Tested with a variety of model cell lines

Click here to discover how Irvine Scientific's CHO Media Development Kit can be used to screen and select the optimal combination of components for your cell culture process.

FEI Unveils Broad Correlative Microscopy Solution Set for Cell Biologists
FEI today announces a suite of solutions for correlative light and electron microscopy (CLEM). Correlating between light microscopy (LM) and electron microscopy (EM) uses LM to find the target and EM to explore its form and function. Automatically aligning data from different imaging techniques allows investigators to find a feature of interest faster in the EM, gain additional information about its structure down to the molecular scale, and understand relationships between the feature and its larger scale context.

The correlative microscopy solution set from FEI includes:
  • Tecnai™ with iCorr™—a fully-integrated workflow in which the LM is incorporated into a transmission electron microscope (TEM) column.
  • CorrSight™—an advanced LM dedicated to the different steps of correlative experiments, enabling imaging of live cell dynamics and quickly fixing those cells for EM.
  • MAPS—software that correlates the EM image with any other image source through a simple alignment procedure.
