Invitrogen Wins US Patent for Dry Cell-Culture Medium

NEW YORK, May 23 - Invitrogen said today it has won a patent in the US for a dry form of cell culture medium.


The patent, No.6,383,810, covers what the company calls Advanced Granulation Technology, which Invitrogen claims is a medium that "produces specific ionic and pH conditions" when reconstituted in water.


AGT media "do not require additional supplementation or pH adjustment ... and reduce he potential for scrap during media preparation," the company said.
