What Is AGT™ (Advanced Granulation Technology™)?
Granulated cell culture media is an easy-to-use, granular form of dry media that is produced by applying fluid bed granulation technology to cell culture nutrient media manufacturing. The patented process allows production of complete formulations of a variety of serum-free, protein-free and chemically-defined media in a dry format.
AGT™ offers the benefits of liquid media without the cost, storage, and transportation issues. It is a complete medium that is pH and osmolality pre-adjusted. The granules dissolve instantly for faster media preparation time than conventional dry powder media. AGT™ media can therefore help reduce total cycle costs, decreasing time involved in raw material planning, procurement and testing as well as media preparation. These benefits are all realized while maintaining comparable cell growth to liquid media.
