Our sera are only sourced from selected countries, supported with certification of origin, and extensively cell culture tested as well as tested for bacterial and fungal contamination, viruses and mycoplasma. Fetal Bovine Serum is sterile filtered at 0.1 µm whereas all other sera at 0.2 µm. Lot-to-lot consistency is assured by a true pool processing technique.
Liquid media provide basic nutrients for all cell culture applications. Each of our high quality cell culture media is manufactured according to the originally published formula or modifications essential to the consistent performance and stability of the culture medium. Using Capricorn media is the best way to guarantee successful cell growth.
The innovative CHO|ONE Media System™ was designed for small- and large-scale protein production using Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) cells. These robust cells are used for the industrial production of a variety of recombinant proteins requiring complex post-translational modifications and correct protein folding.
The CHO|ONE Media System™ is highly suitable for fed-batch cultures. It improves the yield and concentration of recombinant proteins through optimization of a selection of essential nutrients and growth promoting factors. The CHO|ONE Media System™ was especially designed in close cooperation with our biopharmaceutical cooperation partner using CHO-S, CHO-DG44 and CHO-K1 cell lines.
The system keeps the production of stress-related meta bolites such as lactate and ammonia at an absolute minimum during the entire procedure of your fed-batch culture.
PARA|DYM is an entirely new concept in cell culture work and is essentially our special service designed to make your research work more efficient and reliable.
We produce your Ready for Use Medium entirely to your specifications under industrial clean room conditions. The formulation for your medium will be held confidentially, and we guarantee a precise, reproducible and sterile production process. Detailed documentation is provided for our customers on request.
We prepare your cell culture nutrient solution exactly as you wish, using the serum that you have tested, be it from Capricorn Scientific, Sigma or Gibco. You define the serum source and we supplement RPMI, DMEM or whatever your choice of medium is. Additionally, we can include special additives if you require these, such as HEPES, Penicillin-Streptomycin or special growth enhancement factors.
Each sterile flask is vacuum-sealed in plastic so that it is protected from all forms of contamination. Contamination risks in your laboratories are minimised because you will always be working with absolutely clean flasks. The addition of antibiotics can thereby be kept to a minimum
Reagents and Supplements from Capricorn allow you to customize the growth conditions for your cell culture system. All quality products are intensively tested and designed to deliver reproducibility and best performance.
The Company Capricorn Scientific was established in 2013 as a new German manufacturer of cell culture media, sera, and reagents. The main focus of our production is the manufacturing of high quality animal sera for biotech, diagnostic and research applications. Rigorous testing procedures along with comprehensive traceability records and documentation guarantee the excellent and reproducible quality of our products.
As a smaller company, we have the flexibility to provide a wide range of traditional and customized products to meet the growing needs of today's market with lower costs, reduced lead times, and personalised customer service.
Our team of highly skilled and experienced specialists has been working in the field of cell culture for many years. We are committed to providing high quality, reliability, and the service you have come to expect from a globally active cell culture company.
The Quality Capricorn Scientific gathers raw materials from a variety of sources. We have access to both EU- approved, Australia and USA based bovine herds. Serum for Cell Culture is a question of confidence! We work closely with raw material providers to ensure that we only accept safe and well-documented product. For our serum products, we use the latest equipment and techniques to pool, treat and filter under contract bovine sera. Our expert staff oversees each stage of the process and carries out quality control tests on the final product. We have made every effort to build up a continuous supply of raw material so that you can expect a reliable supply of the product you need.
The Mission The mission of Capricorn Scientific is to provide quality cell culture media components, products, and services using the highest safety and compliance standards, to meet the needs of our customers in the global bioprocessing and clinical diagnostic industries. Capricorn Scientific produces a range of fetal bovine serum and other sera, protein fractions, and cell culture media supplements, Capricorn Scientific delivers the highest quality cell culture media products to its customers by providing three key benefits: safety, consistency, and performance.
