New Animal-Free Culture Medium for Media Fill Trials
Specialists in the development of high quality culture media, Thermo Scientific Limited, have launched a new animal-free culture medium, which is suitable for microbiological Media Fill Trials (MFT) in the pharmaceutical industry. Thermo Scientific Cold Filterable Vegetable Peptone Broth (VG0104) is completely free of animal derived material and is suitable for use as an alternative to Tryptone Soya Broth.
Thermo Scientific Cold Filterable VPB receives a gamma irradiated sterilising dose that is validated to be lethal for all yeasts, moulds and bacteria, including bacterial spores and mycoplasmas. In addition, each component is screened and selected to ensure easy filtration, making it ideal for MFT. A Vcap value is calculated and provided for each batch, using three different filter types. This value allows the maximum filterable volume to be calculated before starting a MFT.
