Product Overview

Insect-XPRESSTM Medium is a protein-free formulation designed to support the growth of insect cell lines derived from Spodoptera frugiperda (Sf9 and Sf21) and Drosophila melangaster (S2). Cell densities in excess of 8.3 × 106 cells/ml can be achieved with suspension cultures of Sf9 cells using Insect-XPRESSTM Medium and an excess of oxygen. This formulation can also be used for stationary monolayer cultures and shake-flask cultures.

Insect-XPRESSTM Medium contains L-glutamine and supports superior production of recombinant proteins when using the Baculovirus Expression Vector System (BEVS).
For cryopreservation of insect cells, Insect-XPRESSTM can be mixed 50:50 with Cryoprotective Medium (Cat. No. 12-769E).

All BioWhittakerTM Cell Culture Media products are for Research Use Only (RUO) and are not approved for human or veterinary use or for use in clinical or in vitro diagnostic procedures. If you require GMP grade media, contact Lonza for more details.
