Schneider Insect Medium / Schneider Drosophila Medium


Insect cells are capable to express large amounts of proteins with complex post-translational combinations. That is why they are a preferred choice for the production of biologicals. Their advanced growth flexibility compared to mammalian or bacterial cell lines can be beneficially used in the BEVS Baculovirus expression vector system.

Schneider’s Insect Medium is a preferred medium in genetic, molecular biology and cell research. Also named as Schneider’s Drosophila Medium, it is important for the study of heterologous protein expression. It generates rapid growth of cell derived from Drosophila and other species of the order diptera.


SILAC Schneider’s Insect Medium.

SILAC Stable isotope labeling by amino acids in cell culture is a well known technique for detection of differences in protein abundance among samples using non-radioactive isotopic labeling and mass spectrometry or NMR Nuclear Magnetic Resonance.

SILAC is a robust and a superior reproducible method in quantitative proteomics with remarkable advantages:
- Applicable to a wide range of cell types, supporting multiple culture conditions
- Robust experimental results due to labeling prior to sample preparation
- Ultra high labeling efficiency and high dynamic range in detection

SILAC Schneider’s Insect Medium incorporates L-Arginine and L-Lysine isotopes for quantitative proteomics. We offer following isotopes for the comparison of cell populations:
- R0K0 versus R6K6, R6K8, R10K8, R6K4 respectively.


Schneider Insect Medium


Insect cells, primarily Drosophila, have been used for the study of biological processes. The Schneider insect medium is one of the mostly used one for cell biology, endocrinology, physiology and recombinant protein expression.
