What is Biorisk-free™ recombinant protein?
ORF Genetics has developed a revolutionary production system for biorisk-free™ recombinant proteins of animal origin, such as growth factors and cytokines. The Orfeus™ system uses barley endosperm storage cell, characterised by its biochemically inert environment and lack of endotoxins, as the production host. Further advantages of this system include low protease activity and secondary metabolite content and simple protein content all of which aid in downstream processing. Barley has also the G.R.A.S. (Generally Recognised As Safe) status from FDA.
