Corning® Microcarriers

Ready to Use and Optimized for Cell Expansion

Corning Microcarriers arrive sterile and ready to use in sizes up to 500 grams. Choose from untreated beads or four different attachment-enhancing surface treatments for optimal cell expansion and yield.

Simplify Your Workflow

Important Parameters to Consider

Selecting a Surface

Corning offers a complete range of attachment-enhancing surfaces.

Choosing Serum, Medium, and Agitation Rate

In-house studies demonstrate significant impacts on cell attachment and expansion

Many parameters can impact cell attachment and expansion on microcarriers including microcarrier surface, pH level, and medium. Changes in agitation rate, sparger choice, sparging rate, and impeller design can also impact cell attachment and subsequent expansion on microcarrier beads.
