Vmax™ X2 is a novel, fast-growing bacterial strain designed and optimized for high-level recombinant protein expression. To obtain the fastest growth and highest protein yield, we recommend Vmax™ X2 enriched growth medium.
A variety of commonly used medium supports the growth of Vmax™ X2 cells. However, due to the strain’s origins as the marine bacterium Vibrio natriegens, Vmax™ X2 cultures grow best in osmotically rich media with higher salt concentrations. This nutritionally rich, optimized medium results in rapid growth and robust expression for Vmax™ X2 cultures.
