About Cell Culture from BBI
BBI cell culture media components are principally our range of human Transferrin products. Transferrin is a vital component for cell growth media for a wide range of applications delivering iron to support cell propagation.
Transferrin is manufactured at significant scale; BBI prepares approximately 5kg lots under rigorous batch control. These products have been manufactured by BBI for over 25 years, supplying some of the world’s leading cell culture media manufacturers.
BBI produces these materials at our site in the UK under the umbrella of our ISO13485;2016 regulated quality system. The carefully controlled plasma raw material comes from licenced plasma collection centres based in the US. The Transferrin products are purified and formulated using a WHO recognised viral inactivation heat treatment step and terminal 0.2µm filtration, to give assurance of the product safety prior to lyophilisation. Quality control checks ensure the material is low in endotoxin and is characterised by a range of analytical tests to ensure product quality. The material is supplied for In Vitro and further manufacturing use.
