Manufacturing Capabilities

German cell culture products that convince

Capricorn Scientific is in the process of building up a state-of-the-art cell culture manufacturing plant in Ebsdorfergrund, near Frankfurt, Germany. Our plant expansion will house 1400 sqm clean room environment and quality laboratories.

Serum products

Animal and human sera provide most of the growth factors, hormones, and other cell stimulating factors required for successful cell culture. A core competence of Capricorn Scientific is the sourcing and manufacturing of a variety of sera products from a wide range of origins.

We manufacture ‘true pool’ batches, ensuring high levels of batch-to-batch consistency. From raw material selection and traceability through to the finished, triple 0.1 µm sterile-filtered product - quality is the key to our success.

Our Serum production suite is spatially separated from our media and reagents plant to ensure absolute security for our customers that require serum-free products.

Cultivation and production media

Cell culture media are essential for a successful cell culture and provide the basic nutrients for most cell growth applications. Our product range includes classical media (DMEM, RPMI 1640, etc.), protein-free media, cell type specific media, cytogenetic media, and customized media.

We fill our products from small volume up to 1,000 L single-use containers, using only highly purified and strictly monitored water for manufacturing.

Our manufacturing site for media is animal-free and strictly controlled by appropriate measures.

Powder products

Capricorn Scientific offers a wide range of powdered basal media and buffer. In order to provide fast response times, we have recently installed a small-scale powder mill to improve our Express Response Media Service.

For large scale powder media, we work together with our external partner in Germany. Together, we implemented new technologies in the manufacturing process of our dry powder media. From raw material selection to the finished product, the whole process is fully controlled, monitored, and trackable. The state-of-the art pin mill and blender capabilities of up to 2000 kg enable us to perform large-scale productions on a biopharmaceutical level.
