Novozymes Biopharma, part of Novozymes, world leader in bioinnovation, announces a new development in animal-free supplements for industrial cell culture on booth #219 at BioProcess International Conference and Exhibition, 23-26 September 2008, Disneyland Hotel, Anaheim, CA, USA.
Novozymes Biopharma, specialists in large scale recombinant protein production for the biopharmaceutical industry, unveils the first product under the CellPrime brand. Novozymes' Transferrin recombinant supplement is now commercially ready in scalable manufacturing quantities for consistency of supply. Designed to reduce risk and ease regulatory concerns for biopharmaceutical manufacturers, this new advance will improve the consistency and productivity of customers' industrial cell culture process.
Manufactured by Novozymes Biopharma, Transferrin is sold exclusively through Millipore Corporation as part of the CellPrime alliance announced in December 2007.
Novozymes Biopharma will also exhibit its two key product lines, Recombumin and LONGR3 IGF-I, on booth #219. Recombumin is a yeast derived recombinant human albumin, which has a structure identical to human serum albumin (HSA).
It is the world's first and only animal-free recombinant human albumin approved for use in the manufacture of human therapeutics. LONGR3 IGF-I is an analogue of human insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) specifically engineered by Novozymes Biopharma for use in industrial cell culture. LONGR3 IGF-I provides improved performance and a consistent, compliant and animal-free alternative to recombinant insulin.
Novozymes Biopharma's portfolio includes biopharmaceutical technologies and services, contract manufacturing of pharmaceutical grade biological APIs, and services such as cell banking, technology transfer and process development.
Novozymes Biopharma demonstrates in-depth expertise during the technical conference with:
