SoloHill® microcarrier products simplify adherent, cell-based research and manufacturing.
Since its inception in 1984, SoloHill® has developed an extensive range of commercially available microcarrier products. By successfully combining cutting-edge research with high-quality manufacturing, SoloHill® not only offers excellent products but also provides valuable technical expertise to ensure optimal results. Our talented scientists are available to assist with product selection, process optimization, and technology transfer to end-user laboratories.
Microcarriers are tiny spheres that normally range from 90 to 300 microns in diameter. The relative density of microcarriers is close to water, which facilitates easy suspension in a cell culture medium. Their core material, surface chemistry, and coating promote attachment and growth of anchoragedependent cells and influences the production of biologics in cell culture processes. A fundamental benefit of microcarriers is that they provide a large effective surface area with a relatively small footprint, allowing large-scale manufacturing of biologics for lower capital investment.
