Bovogen Biologicals provides a number of services to the life sciences sector and related industries, utilising existing bio-manufacturing and processing plant, lyophilisation facility and technical consulting expertise. These services include:
These contract services are based on processes which are central to manufacturing within Bovogen Biologicals and therefore supported with a high degree of in house expertise.
Bovogen Biologicals provides contract sterile filtration/manufacturing services for animal sera, general and industrial reagents and related products.
The company has a state-of-the-art, validated sterile filtration facility consisting of numerous processing rooms serviced by HEPA filtered air.
Bovogen Biologicals offers animal serum filtration processes that use fully disposable / closed loop systems to ensure the highest level of quality is maintained. This disposable system process is also applied where possible for the production of sterile non-serum related products.
Bovogen Biologicals currently manufactures animal serum and related life science products on an OEM basis for a number of clients. Such services include:
The company provides a flexible and adaptable approach to contract manufacturing whilst ensuring strict quality control/assurance to provide the highest level of product quality possible.
Bovogen Biologicals has a wealth of technical expertise and experience in the area of bioprocessing. Coupled with a diversity of highly specialised manufacturing equipment, the company offers bioprocessing services to a wide industry sector.
The company has one of the largest capacity lyophilisers used for bioprocessing in Australia, providing Bovogen Biologicals with a unique processing capability.
A fully validated, 1000 litre ice capacity lyophiliser is PLC controlled to provide optimal drying and consistency between batch cycles. Specific drying cycles for a variety of products can be developed to specification and/or customer requirements.
Freeze-drying is technically known as lyophilisation or cryodesiccation, and is a dehydration process used to preserve perishable material or to make the material more convenient for transport. The complex process involves freezing the material and then reducing the surrounding pressure to allow the frozen water in the material to sublime directly from the solid phase to the gas phase.
Lyophilisation consists of three separate unique and interdependent processes—freezing, primary drying (sublimation) and secondary drying (desorption).
Lyophilisation is a key practice within the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and food industries as it is necessary for the effective long term storage and stability of biologics and other sensitive materials.
