Phyto-HSA (Recombinant Human Serum Albumin from Rice)
Phyto-HSA is an animal-free recombinant human serum albumin expressed from rice grain (Oryza sativa). It is well defined for using as an alternative media supplement in cell culture. It out-performs HSA, BSA and other sources of albumin in promoting cell growth.
Advantages over animal origin serum albumin
Improved safety, to comply with FDA regulations;
Low cost, particularly for mass production;
Greater consistency, such as batch-to-batch control for stem cell culture medium.
· Serum-reduced, serum-free or chemically defined cell culture media
· Antibody production
· Coating for medical devices
· Albumin-based drug delivery
· Vaccine development and manufacturing
