SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Aspira Scientific, Inc., a research and development solutions provider for the chemical and biological sectors, today announces the official launch of its recombinant Human Serum Albumin (rHSA) product. Aspira Scientific's highly pure, cost-effective rHSA is produced from a proprietary expression technology platform, originating from rice grains (Oryza sativa) and is more than 99 percent devoid of any animal, human, or micro-organism derived components ("xeno-free"). To learn more about rHSA, visit www.aspirasci.com/rhsa.
Produced by the innovative plant-based protein technology pioneered by Dr. Daichang Yang of Healthgen Biotechnology Co., Ltd., rHSA has the same application fields as plasma-derived Human Serum Albumin (pHSA), but offers a higher purity, more consistent, xeno-free replacement that can be manufactured to scale. Aspira Scientific's rHSA is made more cost-effectively and safely than other rHSA products, avoiding immunogenicity concerns of rHSA produced in yeast-based expression systems.
"We are proud to collaborate with our strategic manufacturing partner, Healthgen Biotechnology, to offer this ultra-pure, yet highly affordable rHSA for the research market," said Dr. John Chan, CEO, Aspira Scientific. "Our rHSA will fuel innovations in quality-demanding applications such as stem cell therapy, targeted drug delivery, and medical device coating; as well as decrease costs dramatically in high-volume applications such as cell culture media development."
Aspira Scientific's rHSA is manufactured in an ISO 9001 certified facility with rigorous quality control and superior batch-to-batch consistency. The product complies with global regulatory recommendations for non-animal derived components for pharmaceutical related research and development and is available in small-to-large scale commercial quantities.
