NAO Freezing Media

ProFreeze™-CDM, NAO, Chemically Defined Freeze Medium (2X) is universally suitable for cryopreserving many cell types in the absence of fetal bovine serum (FBS). However, it is used to greatest advantage with cells cultured in a serum-free and animal component-free environment. This protein-free freezing medium contains no animal derived components, insulin, or hydrolysate, and maintains high cell viability upon recovery from frozen storage.

Serum-free media and reagents have a wide range of applications, including production of monoclonal antibodies, viral antigens, and recombinant proteins using a variety of mammalian and invertebrate cell lines. There are numerous advantages associated with the use of serum-free media formulations.

  • No need for serum qualification
  • Increased definition
  • Simplified purification and downstream processing
  • Better control over the physiological condition of cultures
  • Ability to optimize formulations for specific cell types
