TC 100 Insect Medium was originally designed for the growth of insect cells, including Spodeptera frugiperda (Sf9), and the expression of recombinant Autographa Californica Nuclear Polyhedrosis Virus (rAcNPV) using the Baculovirus Expression Vector System (BEVS). We offer a variety of Gibco® Media options for a range of insect cell culture applications.

This IPL-41 Insect Medium is modified as follows:

• L-glutamine
• Tryptose phosphate broth
• Sodium bicarbonate

The complete formulation is available. TC 100 Insect Medium is rich in amino acids and uses tryptose as an additional sugar source.
