  • BioProcess - Mineral Salts for Cell Cultured Meat Production

    The production of cell cultured meat as a meat alternative is not limited to plant based products.

    Innovative production processes like animal cell cultivation, known from medical and pharmaceutical science, offer alternatives to get environmental and animal friendly, authentic yet cell based meat. Bioprocessing is a smart tool for the production of meat without animal farming.

    In Vitro Meat on the rise

    Animal cell cultivation needs precisely matched components such as Mineral Salts as buffers and Trace Elements as nutrients. Buffering systems are needed for the regulation of the pH-value, which is generally a critical parameter for culture conditions.

    Inorganic Salts in the media help to retain the osmotic balance and help in regulating membrane potential by providing Sodium, Potassium, and Calcium ions. Trace elements are often supplemented to serum-free media. They are needed in very small amounts to ensure a proper cell growth. These micronutrients are essential for many biological processes, e.g. the maintenance of the functionality of enzymes.


    Synthetic cell culture media serve the following purposes:

    • Survival of cells (a balanced salt solution with specific pH and osmotic pressure; supplemented with various formulations of organic compounds)
    • Cell growth
    • Specialized functions

    Chemically defined media contain ultra pure inorganic and organic ingredients. The requirements for these components vary among cell lines, and give therefore an explanation for the high number of medium formulations known in the market. Each component performs a specific function.
