GlycoBac partners with MilliporeSigma

GlycoBac has partnered with MilliporeSigma to facilitate the distribution of our Sf-RVN cell line for commercial vaccine and gene therapy vector production. In addition to distributing Sf-RVN cells through a cGMP cell bank, MilliporeSigma will offer a chemically defined medium formulation specially designed for Sf-RVN cells.

GlycoBac study highlighted in Virology

GlycoBac researchers recently published a peer-reviewed study on genetic variation and infectivity of Sf-rhabdovirus from different Sf cell lines in the December issue of Virology (Vol. 512, pp. 234-245)

This is the first published study to directly demonstrate Sf-rhabdoviruses can establish persistent, productive infections in Sf cells. It is also the first study to directly demonstrate different Sf-rhabdovirus variants, including variants with a large deletion, are infectious in Sf cells.

The editors of Virology chose to highlight this study. In addition, we were invited to post a synopsis of our study on the Virology Highlights blog.

We thank the editors for recognizing the value of our work!

Sf-RVN cells and how they compare to Sf9 cells:
