InVitria OPTIFERRIN REC. TRANSFERRIN 1G
Manufacturer: InVitria 777TRF0291G
Optiferrin is recombinant human transferrin that is completely animal component free. Optiferrin's performance is equivalent to human transferrin in cell culture and offers significant regulatory advantages due to its safety and consistency. Optiferrin is produced in an animal-free system (ExpressTec), which eliminates safety concerns associated with animal or human derived transferrin that can cause contamination with viruses and prions. In addition, Optiferrin is a consistent product with none of the lot-to-lot variability seen in other transferrins and is an excellent animal-free replacement for bovine transferrin and plasma-derived human transferrin. As a universal iron carrier, Optiferrin also provides better performance than other iron sources and iron chelators. The problem with these alternatives is that cells cannot regulate the amount of iron that is delivered. The uptake of too much iron causes significant cell damage; this damage does not occur when transferrin is used.
