Heuros produces high purity, GM-free growth factors for the manufacture of cultured meat. The company's growth factors are made without using genetic engineering to synthesise recombinant proteins – so products made using this media will be GM-free. Heuros does not use antibiotics, hormones or animal blood products (such as FBS).
Heuros growth factors stimulate the growth of bird and mammal muscle cells. Heuros can work with other cultured meat companies to optimise conditions for the growth & production of their specific cell lines. The company is also developing novel bioreactor designs for the large-scale production of cultured meat.
