SoloHill® Microcarriers

Animal Protein Coated and Animal Product Free Microcarriers

SoloHill® Microcarriers promote excellent anchorage-dependent cell line attachment and growth and have been used for the production of animal and human health products for over 30 years. Without hydration or pre-swelling needed, microcarriers are easily sterilized for use, and their solid core design simplifies seed train preparation. Available both in animal protein-coated and animal product free, SoloHill® Microcarriers fit into any process and are an excellent choice for scale-up projects where process development timelines and capital investment are limiting.



Find the Right Solution

SoloHill® Animal Product Free Microcarriers are for researchers working in limited or without animal sources in their processes. Sartorius offers a high performing certified animal-free microcarrier, perfect for researchers who desire to work within a completely serum-free media and animal product free (APF) process.
