Insect Cell Culture

If you're keen to establish your own culture of insect cells, our Spodoptera frugiperda (Sf) cells lines are the perfect place to start. An essential of the baculovirus expression system, Sf insect cells are an excellent choice for recombinant virus production and amplification, protein expression, and virus titration. Meanwhile, our serum- and protein-free media is specially formulated to facilitate the growth of insect cell lines such as Sf9 and Sf21, Drosophila S2 and Trichoplusia ni ( or Hi-5) cells. Media can be used in both adherent and suspension cell cultures as well as for adapting existing cell populations. To learn more information about our products and their application, read our complete insect cell culture user guide.

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.
