Vmax™ Growth Media

Vmax™ cell lines are derived from the marine microorganism, Vibrio natriegens. This gram-negative, non-pathogenic bacterium exhibits the fastest growth rate of any known organism with a doubling time twice that of E. coli. A variety of commonly used media support the growth of Vmax™. However, due to the strains origins as a marine bacterium Vmax™ cultures grow best in osmotically rich media with higher salt concentrations. To allow for the best possible results when using Vmax™ cells, we offer the media listed below. These media are specifically formulated for Vmax™ cultures.
