Traditional mammalian cell culture is usually anchor-dependent and serum-supplemented, which is directly connected to a series of disadvantages, due to the serum/ animal derived components. In contrast, suspension cultures in animal-derived component free (ADCF) cell culture media have several advantages:
- reduced lot-to-lot variability of the medium
- easier scale-up
- no risk of blood-borne pathogens
- massively reduced production costs
- increased animal-welfare
