Ajinomoto CELLiST Korea Co., Inc. (ACK) announced that it has enhanced their agreement with
JSR Life Sciences, LLC (JSR) to facilitate the worldwide expansion of its biopharmaceutical cell culture media products. 

As part of the collaborative agreement, JSR is now able to offer its clients seven additional CELLiST products,
in addition to the exclusive, co-branded Basal Media CHO-MX, throughout the US, Brazil, as well as European markets: 

• CELLiST Basal Media BASAL3

• CELLiST Basal Media BASAL10

• CELLiST Feed Media FEED2

• CELLiST Feed Media F7

• CELLiST AminoSupplement Cys1

• CELLiST AminoSupplement Cys2

• CELLiST Supplement Glycyl L-Tyrosine Dihydrate

Each CELLiST product is a novel, chemically-defined, and animal origin-free medium that exhibits higher antibody productivity
in CHO cell lines than other products currently available on the market.

"Since 2014, we have been supplying high-quality culture media for biopharmaceuticals from our plant in South Korea,”
said Nakai Yuta, President of Ajinomoto CELLiST Korea. “We are honored to have the opportunity to meet the needs of
customers in Europe and the United States through this enhanced agreement with JSR. This collaboration is important to
grow our culture media business into the second pillar of our amino acid business."

The global market for culture media, which plays a vital role in cell culture for biopharmaceutical research, development,
and manufacturing, is experiencing robust growth. The increasing demand for antibody drugs, vaccines, and the expanding
field of cell and gene therapies underscores the rising demand. By 2030, estimates project the market to exceed USD 10 billion,
driven partly by the growing need for CHO cell line culture media.[2] 


“Ajinomoto is well-suited to manufacture and commercialize this culture media due to their 30+ years of experience
in amino acid technology and the cell culture media industry,” stated JSR Life Sciences President Tim Lowery.
“This new collaboration allows us to offer our clients a comprehensive product line for their biologics manufacturing needs throughout
the Americas and Europe. Coupled with Ajinomoto’s critical access in the APAC region,
we are able to provide access to these important products globally."
