Nucleus Biologics’ strategy for media supply and manufacturing are unique to the industry. We don’t only provide media with defined specifications for you to choose from, but instead build media based on your desired specifications. Start with our recommended McCoy’s 5A formula or choose from a list of publicly available supplier formulations and easily add, remove, or adjust components and concentrations for a custom variation — your intellectual property. McCoy’s 5A medium is manufactured in facilities using GMP guidance and in compliance to ISO 13485:2016.
Cell culture media is for research or further manufacturing. Not for direct administration into humans or animals.
