Whether you're seeding starter cultures or analyzing bacterial samples, our high performance media, sera, and reagents ensure consistent, repeatable results.



As part of our complete cell culture offering, Corning’s comprehensive line of standard and custom media helps create an optimal environment for all stages of cell culture growth and scaling. Our broad selection of vessels, surfaces, and media support your research, development, and production needs.

Corning® sera products can help enhance your cell culture research with additions such as bovine serum albumin (BVA), hormones, growth factors, enzymes, lipids, trace elements, minerals, and nutrients. Our sera products are held to the highest level of sterility — all while meeting strict specifications for endotoxins, residual hemoglobin concentration, pH, and microbiological quality.

To achieve successful growth and consistency, media often requires nutrients, supplements, and other reagents specific to the application and cell type. Whether derived from plants or animals, or used for growing microorganisms, such as bacteria or yeast, our comprehensive line of supplements and reagents can help you create specialized culture environments and meet complex nutritional requirements for successful culture research.
