Enhancing Cell Line Development Workflows

In the search for high-value cells, growth conditions must be optimized to support early growth conditions.

Cell growth and viability can be impaired in defined, animal component-free media, especially when subjected to stress.

High producer cells are more sensitive to media conditions and are likely to be at a growth disadvantage when compared to non-producers.

Comparing outgrowth of CHOZN® cells selected through manual limiting dilution versus VIPS  and InstiGRO, the VIPS/InstiGRO shows an approximate seven-fold improvement in total outgrowth per plate.

Insti Cell Culture Supplements Accelerate growth

High Performance Cell Growth Supplements

Advanced cell culture supplements for use with Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) and human embryonic kidney (HEK) cells.
Solentim Cell Culture Supplements Workflow


The Insti range of supplements is designed to enhance growth at different stages of cell line development for accelerated workflows:

- InstiGRO™ to assist with early cell growth and single cell survival

- InstiSHAKE™ as a follow on supplement to InstiGRO in the transition to deep well plates

- InstiTHAW™ to protect cells during freezing and thawing.

VIPS™ + InstiGRO™: a powerful combination

Verified In-situ Plate Screening (VIPS™) is our high-efficiency, single-cell seeder. This low-pressure system demonstrates higher seeding efficiency and outgrowth when compared to limiting dilution methods and provides a double-lock of assurance with enhanced in-well imaging to track seeding and clonal growth.

Complementing our VIPS technology, cell outgrowth is further enhanced with the use of InstiGRO™ and InstiGRO™ PLUS cell growth supplements.

Viral Vector Production for Gene Therapy – the benefits of using InstiGRO HEK

GSK report InstiGRO HEK had a significant positive effect on clonal outgrowth in all conditions tested, with increase in outgrowth ranging from a factor of 2.7 to 11.5

Cell Line Development using InstiGRO CHO

When comparing outgrowth of CHOZN® cells selected through limiting dilution versus the VIPS +/- InstiGRO CHOPLUS method, VIPS + InstiGRO CHOPLUS shows an approximate seven-fold improvement in total outgrowth per plate.
