  • Reproducible Results – Using a defined medium in which all of the ingredients are known vs. an undefined media containing yeast extract or casein hydrolysate, enables tight replication of results.
  • Lower Your Regulatory Burden - Because Korz does not contain any animal-derived components, no certificate of origin is required.
  • Reduced Risk – The elimination of undefined components significantly reduces the risk of process related impurities associated with complex biologicals.


Using synthetic biology methods, the Escherichia coli K-12 genome was reduced by making a series of planned, precise deletions. The multiple-deletion series (MDS™) strains (1), with genome reduction of up to 15%, were designed by identifying non-essential genes and sequences for elimination, including recombinogenic or mobile DNA and cryptic virulence genes, while preserving robust growth on rich and minimal media for either protein or plasmid production. Genome reduction also led to unanticipated beneficial properties, including high electroporation efficiency and accurate propagation of recombinant genes and plasmids that are unstable in other strains. Subsequent deletions and introduction of useful alleles produce strains suitable for many molecular biology applications.

MOPS- 3-(N-morpholino) propanesulfonic acid. MOPS (pKa = 7.20) is an excellent buffer for many biological systems at near-neutral pH, MOPS Minimal is designed for culturing E. coli and works very well with our Clean Genome® strains.
