Product Overview

Grace′s Insect medium was originally formulated to support the growth of cells derived from the Australian emperor gum moth, Antherea eucalypti. This medium was modified to more closely resemble Antherea hemolymph from Wyatt′s medium. Grace’s Insect medium is primarily used as a basal medium for the growth and maintenance of cell lines derived from lepidopterans.
