Bioprocessing

Designed Specifically For Biopharmaceuticals 

BD Biosciences – Advanced Bioprocessing offers specialty media products to help you achieve optimal production yields, while minimizing media development time. Different from other marketed media products, our catalog media are nutrient rich and designed to specifically increase production and titer in large-scale biopharmaceutical applications.

BD’s specialty media is available through two distinct avenues. Our defined set of pre-formulated production catalog media, BD Select™ and BD Cell™ are designed for specific applications and are available through our website. In addition, BD’s expansive proprietary growth media library is formulated for a broader range of cell lines and application and is available through consultation and services.


BD Select Media

BD Select™ media products are designed for large-scale production of CHO and other mammalian cell culture applications.

BD Select™ CD1000 Medium

BD Select™ CD1000 is a chemically-defined, basal medium that can be further enriched with supplements and feeds to meet your needs. BD Select™ CD1000, after further enhancement with our supplements and feeds can be used in batch, fed-batch and profusion processes, helping to reduce process development time, resources, and costs. BD Select™ CD1000 does require cell adaptation for optimal results. Click here for BD Select™ CD1000 adaptation protocol.
