The vaccine industry is challenged to produce large quantities of vaccines in a rapid and cost-effective way. Major changes to current bioprocesses are both diffi cult and very expensive to implement. Using HEK293 it has been demonstrated that addition of recombinant human insulin to commercially available chemically defi ned media, can be used as a supplement to increase VCD and specifi c viral yield.
