Vero Expression

Cell culture products developed and perfected together with vaccine manufacturers

Capricorn Scientific’s products for Vero cells are highly suitable for small- and large-scale vaccine production. Our cell culture media were optimized in cooperation with an industrial partner.  

 

Advantages at a glance

  • Optimized for cultivation with microcarriers
  • Serum-free, animal origin-free and low protein formulation
  • Direct adaptation for most cells

Vero cell history

Vero cells are obtained from the kidney of the African green monkey. This anchorage-dependent cell line has been licensed for the production of both live and inactivated viral vaccines. Throughout the world, Vero cells have also been used for the production of several viruses. Virus propagation in cell culture systems has pushed the development of virus vaccines enormously. The Vero cell line is the most widely accepted cell line by regulatory authorities and has been used for over 40 years to produce diverse virus vaccines.

Recommendation for the future

The regulatory requirements discourage the use of animal products, such as serum in the process of vaccine production. They should thereby be avoided. Capricorn Scientific has developed serum-free and animal-component free media for the propagation of Vero cells. The media also support the growth of Vero cells on microcarriers in controlled environments. The media are ideal for vaccine production using the Vero cell line.
