Webinar The Science of Alt. Protein: Developing optimized media for cultivated meat production with Dr. David Block

The development of a plant-based, inexpensive media for growth of cultivated meat cells is a key technical hurdle in further commercialization of cultivated meat products. Generatinging a viable alternative to expensive pharmaceutical grade medium is not an easy problem to solve, as it requires experimental optimization of at least 20-30 potential media ingredients simultaneously. Join Dr. Block as he discusses novel experimental optimization methods that can be used to develop new, less expensive media for cultivated meat.

“Truly animal-free” cellular meat collaboration: CPI and 3DBT examine alternatives to fetal bovine serum

The two companies are investigating alternatives to FBS, examining the development of cell feeding medium that incorporates a new class of growth-promoting supplements for increased biomass production. These supplements aim to eliminate the need for expensive FBS and be sourced from existing agro-industrial by-products, such as low-value raw materials like wood waste and chaff. This reduces costs and cuts the carbon footprint of cultured meat production.

Milestone: Over 80x reduction in our medium cost

Last year, the MO team successfully removed Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS) from our media. Given FBS is the standard used in cell culturing, this was no small task. But FBS comes from unborn calves and is obtained inhumanely, so removing it was a top priority. Some of our hard-working MO team. Since then, the MO team has been working to ensure the media we use is completely animal component-free. In addition to this, they’ve made a huge amount of progress in lowering the cost, which is vital given the medium will be the most expensive part of our process. Indeed, after successfully developing animal-free media, the MO team has reduced the cost by 88 times.
