Koege, Denmark: – Novo Nordisk Pharmatech A/S, the leading worldwide supplier of high-quality insulin, will be a leading presence at the upcoming European Society for Animal Cell Technology (ESACT) meeting in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Novo Nordisk Pharmatech is a sponsor of the meeting and will also exhibit there at Booths 65-66 at Lausanne’s Swiss Tech Convention Center. Its display will focus on the increasingly influential role of recombinant insulin for innovative biologics and human vaccine production.

Serum-free growth

“We look forward to welcoming visitors to our stand to show them the advantages of growing their cells with insulin from Novo Nordisk Pharmatech,” said Marketing Manager Vanessa León.

“At Novo Nordisk Pharmatech we remain the leading worldwide supplier of recombinant insulin, which has become a key component in serum-free growth media for mammalian cells, approved by regulatory bodies worldwide, including FDA and EMA,” said Ms. León.

“Our products are manufactured to cGMP standards, allowing us to guarantee global regulatory compliance with extensive supporting documentation, consistent high quality and continuous availability on a secure global supply chain with high levels of service and support,” she added.

Influenza vaccine production

“We are able to tailor recombinant insulin to particular applications, such as specific Influenza production. This is increasingly important as the vaccine industry meets the challenges of producing large quantities of vaccines in a rapid and cost-effective way, while major changes to current bioprocesses are both difficult and very expensive to implement,” Vanessa León explained.

“Using HEK293 it has been demonstrated that an addition of recombinant human insulin to commercially available chemically defined media, can be used as a supplement to increase VCD and specific viral yield”, she noted.
