New Study Finds Growth Factor Boosts Productivity in Mammalian Cell Culture
Date:10/10/2008

Leading researchers in academia and industry reveal powerful effects of recombinant lactoferrin (tradename: Lacromin) in mammalian cell culture

leading to a significant boost in productivity.

FORT COLLINS, Colo., Oct. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- A recently published study in the scientific journal In Vitro Cellular & Developmental Biology revealed that recombinant lactoferrin (tradename: Lacromin, see http://www.Lacromin.com) is a strong growth factor for promoting cell growth and cell productivity across a variety of cell lines, including intestinal cells, hybridoma cells, osteoblast cells and embryonic kidney (293) cells.

A global collaborative research effort led to the findings. The study included research conducted by two prestigious international research institutions: University of Auckland in New Zealand and Barts & The London Queen Mary's School of Medicine & Dentistry in London. Also, cell culture industry researchers at the following companies contributed to these findings:

-- HyClone Inc in Logan, Utah;

-- KC Bio in Kansas City, Missouri; and

-- InVitria in Fort Collins, Colorado.

Dr. Ning Huang, Vice President of Research and Development for InVitria, coordinated the study entitled, "Bioactive recombinant human lactoferrin, derived from rice, stimulates mammalian cell growth (1)."

"In working with research collaborators in the industry and leading academic centers around the world, recombinant lactoferrin has been shown to promote cell growth and productivity in a variety of cell lines and also improves antibody product yields in mammalian cell culture," said Dr. Huang. "Since recombinant lactoferrin is well defined, it is an important component for adapting cells and transitioning cells from serum to animal free and completely defined cell culture media."

"We have discovered that recombinant lactoferrin is an important growth f
