Need to get chemically-defined?

Van Heron Labs has launched a new service to help eliminate non-defined media components and help our partners transition to chemically-defined culture for any cell type or system. This service can be used in conjunction with our flagship platform, or as a stand-alone service.


Ser-X Technology

A service dedicated to removing costly and non-defined serum, serum replacements, other extracts and even recombinant factors from your process and aiding the transition to chemically-defined culture.

What is it?

We’ve created a 10+ part system that will allow our partners to more effectively replace serum, proprietary serum replacements, other extracts and even costly recombinant factors while retaining cell performance and key quality attributes.


Based on your bioprocess and goals, we’ll give you the tools and knowledge you need to help substantially lower or eliminate non-defined and costly components within your system and transition to a chemically-defined regime.

For this, we don’t necessarily need to know everything about your proprietary system and/or culture regime to help you along your journey to becoming chemically-defined. We’ll make the recommendations with the information we have, and you and your team can choose what and how you’ll implement our strategies to reach your goals. If desired, support through implementation is complementary.
