Cell production for applications in virology

RD-Biotech produces MRC-5 cells but also VERO, HEP-2, Mac COY cells, in a dedicated platform and according to an optimized procedure.
The cells are supplied in different formats: ready-to-use suspension cells or cryopreserved cells.

MRC-5 cells

MRC-5 cells are fetal diploid cells, human embryonic fibroblast type (fetal lung).
Due to their susceptibility to numerous human viruses, in particular for Cytomegalovirus, MRC-5 cells are widely used in the field of virology to produce virus cultures, they are also used for diagnostic and research purposes.

These cells are supplied either in suspension and ready to use, or in frozen form.
RD-Biotech also can provide Growth Medium (10% Serum) and Maintenance Medium (2% Serum), ready-to-use media for MRC-5 cells.

VERO cells

VERO cells are a cell line widely used for cell cultures.

This line was isolated from kidney epithelial cells of an African green monkey.

This cell line is continuous and aneuploid, the cells can thus replicate without risk of senescence. VERO cells are widely used in the field of virology, in particular as host cells for the culture of viruses.
