Animal Component Free Supplements to Enhance Cell Growth in Defined Media

Cells grown in defined, animal component-free media are susceptible to impaired growth and viability when subjected to stress. This is particularly relevant when screening for highly productive biopharmaceutical-producer cell lines, with cells focusing resources on high levels of antibody production likely to be at an evolutionary disadvantage, suffering high attrition rates, compared to non-producers. Common challenges include plating at low density (limiting dilution cloning and post-cloning outgrowth), recovery from cryopreservation, and growth in semi-solid media.

Building on extensive expertise growing cells under defined conditions, SAL Scientific have developed the InstiGRO™ and InstiTHAW™ range of animal component-free media supplements that dramatically improve the growth and viability of cells subjected to stress. We have also developed the InstiSHAKE™ range of supplements that deliver substantial enhancements in the growth kinetics of cells in routine culture. Supplements in each category are available for CHO and HEK cells.

All of these products are animal component free and are supplied as concentrated stock solutions that can be added to any defined media to deliver:

  • Enhanced cell growth and viability.
  • Increased cloning efficiency and a higher probability of isolating highly productive clones.
  • Cell growth to high densities.
  • Faster timelines.
