Cell Growth Supplements & Reagents

Enhancing Cell Line Development Workflows

In the search for high-value cells, growth conditions can be optimized to support early growth conditions. Insti Reagents are proprietary animal component-free cell culture supplements for CHO and HEK cells which confer major growth and survival advantages within cell line development.

Designed to work with VIPS™ automation, Cell Metric® imaging, ICON™ cell analysis or manual cell practices, the Insti Reagents can transform workflows with greatly enhanced successful colonies per plate.

The Insti Reagents range are cell culture medium supplements comprising recombinant proteins, plant extracts and other chemical components.
Based on information provided by our suppliers, we certify that none of the ingredients used in our supplements contain starting materials derived from animal or human tissues, and that no animal or human-derived materials are used in the manufacture of the raw material ingredients used in our supplements.

Our supplements may contain materials produced by or extracted from plants, bacteria, or yeast, or may contain recombinant human or animal proteins, provided they are produced in plants or micro-organisms.


High Performance Cell Growth Supplements

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

Introducing InstiGRO™, InstiSHAKE™ and InstiTHAW™


InstiGRO CHO and InstiGRO HEK to assist with early cell growth and single cell survival.


InstiSHAKE CHO and InstiSHAKE HEK as a follow-on supplement in the transition to deep well plates.


InstiTHAW CHO and InstiTHAW HEK 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.
