Deal covers supply of media-filled disposable bioreactor bags.
Invitrogen and Wave Biotech entered into a partnership to supply media-filled disposable bioreactors. Under the agreement, Invitrogen will offer its GIBCO® brand cell culture media products to Wave Bioreactor® users in filled Cellbag® brand disposable bioreactor bags.
Invitrogen will offer both standard and custom media products in the standard O-series Cellbag format.
“This partnership creates a tremendously convenient solution for bioreactor users and will substantially reduce customer prep time and the inherent contamination risks and raw materials tracking issues associated with self-filling of bioreactor vessels,” said Nicolas Barthelemy, senior vp of Invitrogen’s cell culture systems division.
