QKINE: SPECIES-SPECIFIC AND OPTIMIZED GROWTH FACTORS FOR THE PRODUCTION OF BOVINE AND PORCINE CULTIVATED MEAT 

Cellular agriculture has the potential to transform food production and impact the health and well-being of future generations. Cultivated meat, fish, fat and dairy produced by culturing animal cells has immense promise but there are many challenges that must be overcome to bring these technologies to market and achieve cost parity. The cell culture media used to grow these cells is an intense area of R&D. Bioactive recombinant proteins, especially growth factors and cytokines, are critical components in most cultivated meat cell culture media, except for some chicken and fish media. Growth factor proteins are highly potent and provide a carefully orchestrated set of biochemical signals to control cell growth and fate.

Qkine has recently published an application note highlighting immediate priorities for cultivated meat and fat culture media optimization while addressing some frequently asked questions related to cultivated meat research.
