            Fermentation Flow ChartExtraction Flow ChartAlbumins produced by recombinant methods, whether in yeast or plants are animal free and therefore do not present risks commonly asscoiated with animal derived materials.  Such risks include host viral contamination (e.g., hepatitis C) or prions.  In addition, like  AlbagenTM and Oryzogen are also highly purified by chromatographic methods resulting in higher homogeneity and purity as compared with animal derived materials. Furthermore, in the case of Albagen, no yeast derived proteins are detected by highly sensitive Western Blot analysis and any minor components have been identified as human recombinant albumin peptide fragments by the same method.  Our procedure for the creation of recombinant albumin has been designed to ensure that our product meets the highest level of quality and lot to lot reproducibilty and has been improved for long term multi-year storage and stability.  Additionally, in the case of AlbagenTM, the risk associated with certain trace metals aducts with albumin which can cause allergic reactions, has been removed by use of a patented construct.
