Baculovirus Products

OET offers a comprehensive range of baculovirus recombinant protein expression products to support successful gene expression and protein production in insect or mammalian cells, either through using the flashBAC™ or linear DNA BacPAK6 systems. In addition to this, we also offer virus titration kits, transfection reagents, sequencing primers and our starter package baculoCOMPLETE which contains everything needed to begin recombinant protein production.

What is the flashBAC™ Baculovirus Expression System?

The flashBAC™ expression system utilises DNA from the baculovirus genome that has been genetically optimized to function as a recombinant protein expression vector. The system offers high yields of quality protein, is easy to use and is also back compatible with most transfer vectors based on homologous recombination. In this way the flashBAC™ system has become the expression of choice for those needing optimal protein expression in insect cells, and increasingly in mammalian cells via the BacMAM system. The genetic modifications not only prevent parental virus from replicating but also optimise the expression of difficult to express proteins.

As you are aware the UK is due to leave the EU. Negotiations are still ongoing so it is yet unclear how this will affect trade going in and out of the UK. OET will be preparing for all possible outcomes as best we can to ensure that customer orders can still be fulfilled.

However, we recommend that if you know you will require OET products in the initial months following the  departure date, you should consider placing additional orders now to ensure you have sufficient kits and reagents if potential delays in shipping do arise. At present this applies more significantly to customers within the EU.

If you have any concerns or questions relating to this please do not hesitate to contact us.
