Express Media Service

Irvine Scientific understands the critical role that prototypes play in media development. Through our Express Media Service (EMS), Irvine Scientific’s lab is virtually an extension of our customers' labs.

The EMS program offers:

  • Flexible small-scale media production
  • Express service, with orders usually ready within 10 business days or less
  • Accessibility to Irvine Scientific’s EMS R&D team for formula review and consultation

The EMS program is ideally suited for:

  • Scale-down modeling
  • Small-scale process development prior to scale-up
  • Troubleshooting and media screening of custom products
  • Critical raw material evaluation
  • Formula development and optimization

Supported Formulas

  • Customer-developed formulas
  • Irvine Scientific formulas (e.g. BalanCD CHO Feed 1 with high glucose, or low NaCl)
  • Classical formulas with or without modifications (e.g. RPMI medium 1640 with low NaCl)

Powder and Liquid Formulas

Liquid Media:
  • Liquid lots from 1 L to 200 L
  • Media can be packaged in bottles ranging from 100 mL to 1 L, or standard bags from 5 L up to 20 L
Powder Media:
  • Powder lots from 1 kg to 18 kg
  • Media are packaged in containers by weight
  • EMS milling technology is the same as in the large-scale GMP manufacturing facilities. This consistency reduces the variability in scaling up
Raw Material Control
  • Raw materials used in the EMS lab are the same high-grade raw materials used in large-scale GMP production that have been approved by Quality Assurance, whenever possible
  • Control and care of the raw materials is the same as within Irvine Scientific’s ISO 13485:2016 regulated facilities
QC Testing

Quality control testing and Spent Media Analysis is available on EMS products, and can be priced and performed upon request. Optional testing includes:

  • Appearance
  • pH
  • Osmolality
