Chemically defined boosters
GMP grade peptides and keto acids solving key issues in mammalian cell culture.
Dipeptides for solubility
cQrex™ GY, a L-Tyrosine containing peptide, offers high solubility at neutral pH without introducing new substances to the medium and is readily metabolized.
Dipeptides for stability
cQrex™, cQrex™ AQ and GQ stabilize the amino acid, leading to longer shelf life and improved cultivation performance.
Keto-acids for performance
cQrex™ AKG directly stimulates the energy cycle without ammonia generation and acts as scavenger for ammonia and oxidants, boosting cell density and titer levels.
