Media Preparation Core

About Us

The Media preparation lab offers a wide variety of quality controlled media at economical prices. Media is prepared in large batches ranging from 50L-300L from commercially produced powders. All of our products go through a strict QC program . Custom plates and media are offered by request and are usually available within 2-4 business days. All other orders placed on-line can be picked up on the next business day. The Media Core services are very convenient and cost-effective.

Disclaimer: The Media lab's products are quality controlled and given a conservative expiration date. However, when dealing with sensitive and difficult cell lines remember to rotate stock and use the freshest batch of media available to ensure proper growth.

Core maintenance and cleaning demonstrations are also regularly available. Call (216) 445-0540 to schedule an appointment, or email media personnel at
