Basal Media

Cell culture media

Ajinomoto CELLiST Korea’s CELLiST BASAL Media for Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) cell lines are developed based on Ajinomoto’s strong capabilities in amino acid technology and over 30 years of experience in the cell culture media business.
CELLiST Media are high-performance, chemically-defined media, free from any animal-derived ingredients.

BASAL CHO MX growth medium provides optimal balance of amino acids and other nutrients to ensure adequate cell growth and maximum productivity of your process. BASAL CHO MX Medium is completely chemically-defined and does not contain any animal or plant-derived components.
