Animal-free Media Fill Broth Available in Convenient Ready-to-use Bags

Oct 14 2010

Oxoid is pleased to announce that Oxoid Cold Filterable Vegetable Peptone Broth (cfVPB) is now available ready-prepared in low-density Bioprocess Containers (BPCs). Designed specifically for pharmaceutical media fill trials, these ready-to-use bags can simply be connected to your process simulation, eliminating the need for bulk media preparation.

The BPCs are manufactured from a medical grade plastic film that meets USP Class VI requirements and are certified free from animal-derived components. Connection is made through a male or female connector, which is attached to the BPC with C-Flex tubing.

Oxoid cfVPB is also certified free from animal-derived components, making it ideal for production environments in the pharmaceutical industry, where there is a need to control the risk of contamination from animal-derived materials–particularly with the emergence of diseases such as transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSE).

Formulated using a pea peptone (digested using fungal enzymes), this is a highly nutritious medium that supports the growth of bacteria, yeasts and fungi when incubated under appropriate conditions.

The cfVPB is gamma-irradiated at a dose validated to be lethal for all yeasts, moulds and bacteria, including bacterial spores and mycoplasmas. The BPCs are, likewise, gamma-irradiated. The medium is prepared using water-for-injection–quality water. The BPCs are aseptically filled, ensuring that the prepared medium is suitable for use in pharmaceutical clean room support areas. The product is also accompanied with quality certification providing full traceability for each batch.

Oxoid cfVPB is available as standard in 10 and 20 litre volume BPCs; other sizes are custom-made.
