What is Formulation Services?
Formulation Services offers researchers the opportunity to focus on other goals while our expert scientists develop and deliver a complete formulation, custom-designed to address all your critical quality attributes (CQAs) specifically for your cell type and desired outcome.
Why use Formulation Services over NB-AIR™ or NB-Lux™?

Our digital platforms provide you with an unprecedented amount of control over your media. Despite the numerous tools available at your disposal, formulating custom media often requires knowledge only obtainable through experience. More than that, we see Formulation Services as a way for companies to increase their capacity by offloading time and resource-intensive tasks such as creating a formula from scratch, iterating, and refining.

How is price determined? How long does a formulation development take?
Pricing and timelines are determined in an advanced, transparent, and detailed scope of work.
Do I need to send my cells to Nucleus Biologics?
For the best results, it is highly recommended to send your own cells to Nucleus Biologics. If necessary, proxy cells can be used in certain conditions.
Does Nucleus Biologics manufacture the media that is formulated?

Nucleus Biologics is a premier manufacturer of custom media and biological solutions and can assist you in small lot or scale-up. We can manufacture liquid media and solutions from 2L up to 2,000L in RUO or GMP quality in our state-of-the-facilities. In addition, we can manufacture powder media, buffers, and balanced salts in pods (500 mL) for use on the Krakatoa media maker. Krakatoa pods are RUO quality.

Products are manufactured under GMP conditions and governed by strict adherence to an ISO 13485:2016-certified quality system.
