The animal origin-free (AOF) trend in bioprocessing has taken a while to reach microbial bioproduction. In this podcast, we explore the reasons behind this and delve into how AOF products are impacting the future of biopharmaceutical manufacturing. We also discuss the first chemically defined microbial medium—the Gibco™ Bacto™ CD Supreme Fermentation Production Medium (FPM). Hydrolysate-free and AOF, this dry powder medium was specially designed to support high-cell-density cultures of E. Coli. Listen to bioprocessing experts and discover more.
