Media Development & Manufacturing

Akron is recognized globally for its highly specialized cell therapy-focused media development experience.

Over the years, Akron has developed media formulations for cells of all shapes and sizes with a focus on cell expansion, differentiation, and cryopreservation.

We leverage our formulation team’s expertise to generate optimal conditions for achieving your desired outcomes. Our systematic approach to experiment design and execution allows us to iterate quickly and define the best formulation for your application.

Once we have defined the optimal formulation for your process, we proceed to further develop the process and transition your product to cGMP compliance. We take on small to medium scale batch size productions to meet the appropriate supply needs of clinical and commercial cell therapy companies worldwide. With manufacturing scales from 10L to 500L, we make it possible for cell therapy developers to outsource media production to the experts and focus their efforts where it matters most – the drug product.

Whether you need us to start from scratch, transfer a well-defined in-house formulation, refine a poorly defined recipe, or optimize an off-the-shelf product with limited documentation and support, we can take your media, develop it further, and make it cGMP compliant.

Contact us today to learn how we can support your efforts to take control and improve your processes with cGMP-compliant media.
