Viral Vaccines Media

Viral Vaccine Cell Culture Media

Specialty Media Designed to Allow Maximum Cell Growth and Infection Rate

Viral vaccines are produced by viral infection of susceptible animal cells or by recombinant protein expression in suitable host cells. A variety of cell lines are used for production of viral vaccines, mostly cells derived from kidneys, such as Vero, MDCK, HEK293 and BHK21, although others cell types can also be used (sf9, sf21, EB66®, ...). Specialty media offered in this category have been designed to allow maximum cell growth and infection rate.

Superior MDCK Cell Proliferation

Benefit from ProMDCK™ Outperforming Serum-Free Media

ProMDCK™ are serum-free media dedicated to the growth and infection of Madin-Darby Canine Kidney (MDCK) cells in all conditions, either for research of for further manufacturing purposes. ProMDCK™ media are optimized for both expansion and virus infection of MDCK cells in planar culture conditions (2D version) and in stirred bioreactors, bound onto microcarriers (3D version).

Insect Cell Proliferation and Infection

Insect-XPRESS™ Is a Proven Easy-To-Use Medium for Viral Infection

Insect-XPRESS™ medium is a protein-free formulation designed to support the growth of insect cell lines derived from Spodoptera frugiperda (Sf9 and Sf21). High cell densities can be achieved with suspension cultures of Sf9 cells using Insect-XPRESS™ Medium and an excess of oxygen. This formulation can also be used for stationary mono-layer cultures and shake-flask cultures. Insect-XPRESS™ Medium contains L-glutamine and supports superior production of recombinant proteins when using the Baculovirus Expression Vector System (BEVS).

Need to grow your Vero cells?

ProVero™ 1 Serum-Free Medium Allows for High Density Vero Cultures and Good Virus Titer

ProVero™ 1 serum-free medium is protein-free and designed to support the growth of Vero and MDCK kidney cells. ProVero™ 1 Medium includes HEPES and sodium bicarbonate buffer. The absence of proteins and the very low levels of human recombinant insulin facilitate both downstream processing and regulatory compliance. Some Vero cell strains require additional supplementation with 5.0 μg/L rhEGF for optimal cell growth.
