Cell Culture Media & Reagents

Horizontal Tabs


Growth Promotion and Cytotoxicity
Corning Classical Media products undergo a variety of tests to determine functionality and toxicity using growth-promotion analysis.

Physiochemical Properties
Liquid and powder Classical media products are tested to determine pH, osmolality and residual moisture.

Biological Tests
Testing of Corning liquid classical media products guarantees low levels of endotoxin, mycoplasma, and an absence of contamination.

Buffered salt solutions are made to a physiological pH and salt concentration, and most commonly include sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, and chloride. They can be used for washing tissues and cells, as well as provide cells with water and inorganic ions, while maintaining a physiological pH and osmotic pressure.

The use of serum can have some negative aspects that are troublesome in the production of recombinant proteins, viral vaccines, cellular therapies, and monoclonal antibodies. To minimize problems, serum-free media have been developed with numerous advantages including lot-to-lot consistency, reduced foaming, the elimination of exogenous agents, simpler downstream processing, high cell yield support, and fewer regulatory obstacles.

Our high-quality serum products perfectly complement our wide range of sterile-filtered, low-endotoxin, classical cell culture media. This complex supplement contains proteins, growth factors, hormones, amino acids, sugars, trypsin inhibitors, and lipids which support vigorous in vitro growth of a large number of cells.

Cell and Microbiological cultures require nutrients, supplements, buffers, and other reagents specific to the product being grown to maximize results and consistency. There are two types of growth media: those used for cell culture, which use specific cell types derived from plants or animals, and microbiological culture, which are used for growing microorganisms, such as bacteria or yeast.

The molecular biology product line ranges from microbiological media and components to molecular reagents and buffers. With a wide range of antibiotics to choose from, these products allow you to select your growth as well as ensure their viability and proliferation.

Corning High Quality Water is manufactured in an FDA-registered facility in accordance with a comprehensive quality system that’s compliant cGMP and current ISO 13485 guidelines.

Corning flexible packaging systems are available in multiple formats including custom configurations to meet your exact requirements. Our single-use bags are designed to be practical and cost-effective alternatives to rigid-walled containers. They are fabricated to match your specific application with a variety of bag sizes and tubing/connector configurations available. These containment and delivery systems preserve the physical, chemical, and functional characteristics of sterile fluids.

  • Corning media products are manufactured by Mediatech, Inc. in the United States, to the highest quality standards. Mediatech’s three decades of manufacturing history demonstrates its consistent ability to provide customer value through industry-leading product and process quality.
  • Current Good Manufacturing Practices: Mediatech follows current Good Manufacturing Practices for all catalog and custom products. cGMPs are prescribed by the FDA Quality Systems Regulation which requires establishing aquality system for the design, manufacture, packaging, labeling, storage, installation, and servicing of finished medical devices intended for commercial distribution in the United States.
  • ISO Certification: Mediatech is certified to current ISO 13485 Medical Devices Quality Management Systems - Requirements for Regulatory Purposes. This standard developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has qualified Mediatech to the highest global standards for a medical device company. Mediatech undergoes routine audits by an authorized certification body to maintain ISO certification. All products, catalog and custom, are manufactured following the current ISO 13485 standards.
  • Regulatory Affairs and Compliance: Mediatech is an FDA registered facility. Products meeting the requirement of the FDA's in vitro diagnostic medical device are sold in the US with labeling that states 'For In Vitro Diagnostic Use.”
  • Audits: As an FDA registered medical device manufacturer, Mediatech may be subject to periodic cGMP audits by the FDA, at their discretion. In addition Mediatech understands that many of our customers are also subject to various regulatory agency audits and we are willing to offer our support for products purchased from us that may be reviewed during these regulatory agency audits.
  • Sterility Assurance Level: All media products are sterile-filtered and filled aseptically by industry-standard methods since terminal sterilization methods would destroy valuable components of the formulations. The Sterility Assurance Level (SAL) is the industry’s standard of 10-3. Our processes and facility design ensure that there is no more than one random contaminant per 1,000 units. Through continuous improvement, we constantly seek to provide a sterility assurance level that is as low as is reasonably possible.
  • Final Quality Testing: Mediatech meets strict testing requirements for all products as dictated by our Quality Systems, customer demands, and product application requirements.
  • A System that Ensures Success: Corning media products are of the highest quality because of these standards and systems. You rely on your reagents to ensure the best outcome for your work and you can be confident in choosing Corning. Mediatech stands behind its guarantees of strict production documentation, high purity, and consistency between production lots. When results matter, trust Corning for your research needs.
