Yes, there is a kit made by Invitrogen called the MaxBac Baculovirus expression
system.  They also have all sorts of intriguing goodies like Grace's insect
media and Sf9 & Sf21 insect cells, as well as Baculovirus high titer stock.  
The complete system is catalog #K822-03 and it costs $695.  Invitrogen
has a toll-free number:  1-800-955-6288.  I have never used it and don't know
anybody who has (or who has even done Baculovirus expression), but it sounds
great!  Let me know if she uses it and how it works.
