Qkine: Growth factors discovery kits for cellular agriculture research

Growth factors are critical components of cell culture media and provide a carefully orchestrated set of biochemical signals to control cell growth and fate. High purity, animal-free and optimized growth factors produced in an efficient microbial fermentation process provide solutions for research on cultivated meat and cellular agriculture.

Introducing Qkine’s new growth factor discovery kits to help cellular agriculture research.

  • Explore FGF-2 species-specific kit for rapid testing across multiple species, containing multiple species of FGF-2 to replace human proteins in cell-cultivated meat, also including species-specific thermostable FGF-2.
  • Compare wild-type FGF-2 with thermostable FGF2, FGF2-G3, to determine whether the short half-life of FGF-2 is impacting cell fate in your culture.
  • Test their growth factor discovery kits for B8 and Beefy-9 media to compare efficiency and maintenance using thermostable FGF2 with standard media, while also giving you weekends off from changing media.
  • Elevate your research with their serum-free media optimization kit, containing 7 growth factors to fully define your media and streamline your serum-free transition.
