Insect Cells

All OET insect cells are ideal for use with both the flashBAC™  expression system and our other range of baculovirus products. Standard Sf9 cells are best suited for large scale virus amplification and protein synthesis, whilst Sf21 cells are recommended for titre based plaque assay and observation of virus cytopathic effects. In addition to this, the Super Sf9 cell line is engineered for enhanced gene expression of more challenging proteins, including those with unstable or toxic characteristics.

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.
