Global BioIngredients is proud to offer a wide range of protein hydrolysates (peptones), infusions and extracts. Many of our peptones have broad uses while others are specifically tailored to specialized applications including replacement peptones developed to minimize the risk of TSE/BSE contamination
The main use of peptones and protein hydrolysates is in the production of culture media for the growth and identification of microorganisms. There are hundreds of different media formulations using a variety of peptones. Culture media companies may develop or modify formulations to optimize the growth of a particular organism or group of organisms.
Significant volumes of peptones are also used in fermentation media which are used to produce larger volumes of microorganism biomass. In addition, many biotechnology and recombinant DNA procedures also require these media, and the volume is growing significantly.
All these fermentation processes require peptones to provide the culture organisms with essential nutrients. Global BioIngredients offers cost-effective products for all applications, and some specialty products for those fermentations which produce high-value end products such as interferons, insulin and growth hormones.
Peptones are also used for some tissue culture media and vaccine stabilizers, especially lactalbumin hydrolysates and animal free soy peptones. Other non-media applications have been in the area of cosmetics (where acid digests of casein are used in hair shampoo and conditioner formulations), in the area of electroplating (where hydrolyzed proteins are used to aid in the electroplating process), and in the area of special dietary products (where the hydrolysates are used as a source of amino acids).
