The comparative study to determine the sensitivity of different systems has shown that the sand fly cell line
was the most sensitive among the systems tested.

Vivalis know-how and proprietary technology are focused in three main areas: licensing the proprietary ebx(TM) chicken embryonic stem cell lines
to the pharma and biotech industry, in particular for vaccine and proteins production; contract manufacturing of pre-clinical and clinical batches of viral vaccines and recombinant proteins; and discovery of new anti-viral allosteric modulators through its proprietary 3D-Screen(TM) platform.
The researchers aim to eventually develop beta cell lines
that can withstand such an attack.
concluded that human and monkey cell lines
(rhabdomyosarcoma [RD], human larynx carcinoma [Hep-2C], and Buffalo green monkey kidney [BGM]) could be infected by a penaeid shrimp virus, Taura syndrome virus (TSV) (1).
Scientists from the Reproductive Genetics Institute (RGI) announced the development of 62 new cell lines
from embryos donated by patients at the clinic, which screens embryos for genetic disorders.
Scientists removed the outer cell layer and grew the inner cell mass in a petri dish to form a stem cell line
, or group of continuously dividing cells.
The group used mouse-human somatic cell hybrids to screen a panel of mouse cell lines
each containing a single human chromosome.
Each stem cell line
will have the genetic specificity of the lost embryo from which it came, not that of the recipient who might need its differentiated progeny.
The 60 or so existing stem cell lines
, whose research value is still unknown, are located in 10 labs in five countries.
Under BioTime's agreement with CIRM, BioTime will initially provide research grade cell lines
, and within one year, if requested, BioTime will also make available GMP-grade cell lines
along with certain documentation and complete genomic DNA sequence information.
A recent Nature Cell Biology editorial reported that only 19 percent of papers using cell lines
and published between August and December 2013 conducted cell line
