When performing media fill trials, you shouldn’t have to worry about culture media compromising your validated process. Have peace of mind with our irradiated granulated and ready-to-use liquid culture media. Every batch is carefully tested for sterility and growth performance. All our culture media are supplied for the ultimate security of your aseptic process.
Most aseptic filling processes involve a sterile filtration step, which is typically part of the process simulation with culture media. The large amounts of liquid running through the filters make this step both time-consuming and expensive. This is of particular concern when problems, such as clogs, occur.
To avoid such challenges, we take every measure to ensure the reliable cold-filtration properties of its granulated culture media. Filtration tests are performed at every stage and for every batch:
Our ready-to-use culture media include Tryptic Soy Broth (TSB) prepared according to European and US pharmacopeias. Alternatively, you can choose our Vegetable Peptone Broth (VPB). These liquid broths are first sterilized by autoclave, and then undergo a two-step pre-filtration process consisting of a particulate filter to avoid clogging, and a 0.2 μM filter for sterilization. The media is supplied in 10-liter bags that are triple-layered and gamma-irradiated at 9–20 kGy for enhanced safety.
The self-collapsing bags include an 80 cm long tube with an MPC connector (male insert 3/8”), which enables direct connection to the filling line. Various types of connectors are available upon request. An injection port with a septum allows the supplementation of the broth medium, for example, with neutralizers, antibiotic inactivators, or growth supplements.

False results due to low-quality culture media are a major concern in media fill trials. With the robust validated process of our high-quality broths, you can eliminate media-related positives from your aseptic process simulation. Our stringent sterilization process inactivates all viable bacteria, yeast, mold, spores, and mycoplasma.
Our granulated and liquid media are both available as either Tryptic Soy Broth (TSB) or non-animal Vegetable Peptone Broth (VPB). Simply choose the format that suits your needs:
Whether vegetable- or animal-based, every batch of our culture media is produced and tested in compliance with stringent international standards.
For additional security, we source all concerned bovine ingredients exclusively from countries classified by the OIE as negligible risk countries.
Detailed documentation is available for every culture medium we supply. Not only does this support critical attributes of your aseptic process simulation, it also simplifies your audits.
