Effect of Insulin on influenza virus production in HEK293 Cells

Mammalian cells are considered an alternative to eggs for the production of influenza vaccines. HEK293SF-3F6 is a suspension GMP cell line that grows in serum-free media, and influenza production has been achieved in flasks and large bioreactors. To boost influenza production, insulin was added to the cultures. This growth factor was chosen because it has […]
