Koege , Denmark:- Leading Danish supplier of recombinant insulin , Novo Nordisk Pharmatech A/S , will be exhibiting its product line at one of South East Asia’s premier industry events, the BioPharma Asia Convention in Singapore.

The Novo Nordisk Pharmatech team on stand B12 at the Suntec Convention Center in Singapore will be showcasing the company’s recombinant insulin as a key component in serum free growth media for mammalian cells.

Novo Nordisk Pharmatech is one of the world’s leading suppliers of recombinant insulin in cell culture media, powering biopharma blockbuster drugs worldwide.

Optimized cell line media

“This recombinant insulin can be used for the manufacturing of monoclonal antibodies, virus vaccines, gene therapy products and many other biological drug products approved by regulatory bodies worldwide, including FDA and EMA,” said Magnus, Product manager for Novo Nordisk Pharmatech recombinant insulin product.

“This event gives us a great opportunity to focus on our growing Asian market and in particular to reach out to Asian-based biopharmaceutical companies working in cell line development who want to enhance and optimize their cell line media growth. Our insulin can help them achieve this,” Mr. Franzmann explained.

Insulin quality

“For researchers and upstream production managers looking to optimize cell density and viability, insulin quality can play an important role in cell culture media,” he added.

“Biosimilar manufacturers need to keep a strong focus on the manufacturing process of originator drugs. Using Novo Nordisk recombinant insulin reduces the risk of deviations when substituting or replacing insulin in the process,” said Franzmann, who will be part of the Novo Nordisk stand team, on hand to answer technical questions.

Visitors to the stand will also have an opportunity to enter a competition to win an Amazon Kindle.

The stand will also be showing the company’s newest report on Optimization of CHO-S cell culture medium by supplementation with non-animal derived components using DoE –
