OptiVERO is a chemically defined, blood-free media formulation that replaces undefined di- and tripeptide plant-derived hydrolysates with highly pure and biologically active recombinant albumin specifically optimized for VERO-based virus production in both 2D and 3D cell cultures. This unique formulation enables robust VERO cell expansion and unrivaled ability to minimize cell culture variability. OptiVERO outperforms other popular VERO media and can facilitate commercial development of novel viral vaccines by enabling the production of difficult-to-express virus types. It is supplied as a concentrated frozen media and protein supplement with a base media.
