4Cell®MDCK CD Medium: One Ready-to-Use Medium For All Upstream Steps

Madin-Darby canine kidney (MDCK) cells are susceptible to viral infection, including influenza serotypes. Therefore, MDCK cell cultures are increasingly in demand for use in the research and development of new influenza vaccine candidates for human use. 4Cell® MDCK CD is a chemically defined (CD), serum-free, protein-free, animal component-free, hydrolysate-free medium designed to support MDCK cell growth and influenza virus expansion in both research and manufacturing.
