Product Information

Fibra-Cel is a solid support growth matrix for mammalian, animal, and insect cells, used predominantly for production of secreted products such as recombinant proteins and viruses. Fibra-Cel enables sustained long-term periods of high-density growth in perfusion, without danger of clogging; and eliminates the need for cell filtration to separate cells from the end product.

Fibra-Cel® Disks


  • Low pressure drop across the bed of Fibra-Cel minimizes the variability and maintains a global viability of cells over the entire bed
  • High surface-to-volume ratios increases the total biomass that can be maintained in the bioreactor greatly enhancing production of cellular products
  • Entrapped cells are shielded from the turbulence and are less susceptible to shear forces from impeller blades and sparger gas bubbles
  • Higher mass transfer of nutrients and oxygen versus standard microcarrier systems
  • Fibra-Cel is manufactured and tested according to strict quality guidelines
  • Composed of USP Class VI polypropylene and polyester non-woven fiber


  • Hybridoma: DA4-4, 123A, 127A, GAMMA, 67-9-B
  • Anchorage-Dependent: 3T3, COS, Human Osteosarcoma, MRC-5, BHK, VERO, CHO, rCHO-tPA, rCHO - Hep B Surface Antigen, HEK 293, rHEK 293, rC127 - Hep B Surface Antigen, Normal Human Fibroblasts, Stroma, Hepatocytes
  • Insect: Tn-368, SF9, rSF9, Hi-5
