InVitria Successfully Completes Beta Testing and Announces Commercial Launch of Optiferrin for Mammalian Cell Culture
Date:9/17/2009


Optiferrin shown to provide superior performance in cell culture and addresses the need for animal-free transferrin in many applications including Stem Cells, Primary Cells, Hybridoma Cells and Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) cells.

Fort Collins, CO September 17, 2009 / b3c newswire / C InVitria today announced the launch of Optiferrin, a high performance, well-defined and animal-free recombinant transferrin for use in mammalian cell culture. Optiferrin is a cell culture supplement which supports cell growth by regulating the amount of iron transported to the cell. Since iron is required for healthy cell culture performance, it is a critical component to reach optimal performance.

Optiferrin has undergone extensive testing by our beta customers since June 2009. They have formulated Optiferrin into their cell culture media to provide maximum performance and they liked their results. We are delighted to be able to bring this sort of value to our customers through innovations like Optiferrin, said Scott Deeter, President & CEO of InVitria.

Transferrin is natures way to deliver iron in a non-toxic manner, said Dr. Steve Pettit, InVitrias Director of Cell Culture Development. Our product development, along with beta customer results, confirmed that Optiferrin delivered optimal performance without any cell damage. This alleviates customers concerns about animal-origin infectious contaminants or the headaches caused by addition of elemental iron and iron chelators in cell culture media, said Dr. Pettit.

Optiferrin is a complimentary product to InVitrias other cell culture supplement products, which include Cellastim, Lacromin, Zap-CHO and Zap-Hybridoma.
