CellPrime rTransferrin AF is the first animal-free alternative to serum-derived human or bovine transferrin for industrial cell culture and upstream biopharmaceutical applications. It is designed to reduce risk and ease regulatory concerns as it improves the consistency of batch quality and productivity of customers' industrial cell culture processes. Manufactured in FDA-inspected facilities to cGMP standards, CellPrime rTransferrin AF is suitable for both research and commercial scale mammalian cell culture.
CellPrime rAlbumin AF-G is an animal free, recombinant human albumin developed specifically for large scale industrial cell culture. It offers multiple benefits including the maintenance of osmotic balance and transport, the distribution of fatty acids and amino acids, as well as improving consistency of customers' industrial cell culture processes.
Novozymes Biopharma will also exhibit LONGR3 IGF-I, 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. This product is manufactured by Novozymes Biopharma and sold exclusively through SAFC Biosciences.
