Case study: Optimize CHO-S cell culture

Perhaps you already know how to optimize CHO-S cell culture medium by supplementing with animal-free insulin. If not, we have created a case study on just that.

The background for the study is:

The Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) cell line is widely used for the production of recombinant proteins due to its high growing capacity and productivity. Adapting cell culture media for each specific cell line is key to exploit these features for cost effective and fast product generation.

This study focuses on the improvement of CHO-S cell growth producing the antibody Herceptin by addition of animal-free recombinant insulin (r-insulin) as a supplement to commercially available chemically defined media.
