Purified Proteins

Bovine Serum Albumin (Lipid Fortified)


Bovogen Biologicals’ BovoLep BSA product is a highly purified BSA product that has been fortified with a specially formulated ‘cocktail’ of non-animal synthetic lipids for the enhanced growth of fastidious organisms such as Leptospira.


This product is for application where enhancement in the growth of cell cultures is required where the availability of essential lipid nutrients is absent in standard purified BSA fractions. BovoLep BSA has been used to improve the performance of mammalian cells when used as an adjunct in culture media.


Bovogen Biologicals’ BovoLep BSA is manufactured using a proprietary two step purification / heat shock process to produce an exceptionally consistent high quality BSA based product.
