Insect Cell Culture
Recombinant proteins are actively used also in the field of biopharmaceuticals, including life science research. E. coli and animal cells are used for the manufacture of recombinant proteins, but recombinant protein production using insect cells is also commonly used as an effective technology. Due to a lower cost of protein production and ease of scale-up, recombinant protein production using insect cells is positioned as a technology especially advantageous for bulk purification.
