  • Extensive regulatory documentation
  • Continuous availability
  • Secure global supply chain
  • High levels of service and support

We deliver a proven record of product PurityReliability and Consistency and can even tailor Quality products for future therapies.

Increase specific Influenza production with recombinant human insulin

The vaccine industry is challenged to produce large quantities of vaccines in a rapid and cost-effective way. Major changes to current bioprocesses are both difficult and very expensive to implement. Using HEK293 it has been demonstrated that addition of recombinant human insulin to commercially available chemically defined media, can be used as a supplement to increase VCD and specific viral yield.

*Data kindly supplied by Aziza Manceur, National Research Council Canada. Hemagglutinin (HA) assay is used for quantification of Influenza (H1N1). Insulin Human AF used in the experiments is supplied by Novo Nordisk Pharmatech. CD 293 media is trademark of Thermo Fisher Scientific.
