Growth Media for Airway cells

Lonza’s primary cell media products have been optimized for each airway cell type. We offer the same growth and air-liquid interface media for culturing both normal and diseased cells in order to reduce variances between growth patterns. Our BulletKitTM Media is formulated with growth factors and hormones necessary to optimally support consistent growth or differentiation of primary cells while maintaining the tissue-specific characteristics.
