General Description

Our sterile NCS is manufactured in a closed loop system to provide a final product with low endotoxin and haemoglobin levels. The process is monitored from delivery to sterile filtration (1 x 0.1µm) in a fully validated and dedicated filtration facility to ensure the highest level of quality is maintained.  


Raw Material Origin

Our Newborn calf blood is from animals less than 10 days of age, and is collected from New Zealand registered export abattoirs under the supervision of Government Veterinary authorities.


In line with our quality systems, the origin of Bovogen NCS is fully traceable back to the abattoir, and is supported by the availability of full collection and manufacturing records.


Bovogen New Zealand NCS origin is fully traceable, so we can guarantee our origin.
