Kempbio Holiday Luncheon & Toys For Tots Giving

We recently had our annual Holiday Luncheon followed by a Toys-for-Tots shopping excursion. This has become a tradition and a fun way to celebrate this season of giving. The event is fraught with nostalgia as we wander the toy aisles remembering the classic games (sorry, Candy Land, Twister & Jenga) and toys like Lincoln Logs,

How To Make Baculovirus High-Titer Stocks

Baculovirus stocks have infectious titers that usually range between 6×106 and 3×108 pfu/mL. At Kempbio we have found that the best way to ensure that your working baculovirus titers are in the range of 1×108 pfu/mL is to infect Sf9 cells using a low MOI, (we use 0.02) and to incubate at 27°C for 3
