The Cutting-Edge of Trace Elements Analysis


The significance of trace elements and their profound influence on protein and product quality has been extensively documented. Hence, the addition of trace elements through formulation is deemed crucial. Variations in these critical components have been associated with unintended impurities in the prevailing supply chain of cell culture raw materials.

At Ajinomoto CELLiST Korea (ACK), we understand that the foundation of breakthrough biopharmaceutical production lies in the quality of cell culture media. Specializing in media for mammalian cells, particularly CHO and HEK293 cell lines, our products are pivotal in the manufacturing of biologics and biosimilars. Our dedicated focus on trace metal analysis reflects our commitment to offering our clients solution with pioneering capabilities. This ensures the success of your biopharmaceutical production, fostering innovations that can change the world.
