Peptones from Vegetables (Potato and Pea)

The peptones from potatoes and peas offered by GERBU can achieve high yields, helping laboratories to accelerate their research and cut costs. They are manufactured by controlled enzymatic hydrolysis of potato and pea proteins. The vegetable peptones contain a mixture of peptides and free amino acids and are produced with raw materials from vegetable origin only.

Veggietones for Pharmaceutical Applications

The use of meat- and animal-based substances in the pharmaceutical industry has raised significant apprehensions following the emergence of Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) in the 1980s. The growing concerns regarding the risk of infectious diseases have hastened the need for materials free from animal sources, leading to an increased demand for animal-free alternatives in the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industries.

The vegetable-based peptones from Potato and Pea offered by GERBU are a great alternative to traditional animal-derived products and are ideally suitable for use in pharmaceutical applications. The veggietones eliminate the risk of contamination with animal and human diseases during fermentation processes and are advantageous for applications in medicines and vaccines produced through fermentation.

This product is for use in laboratories and production. Not for human or animal use. For further advice please contact GERBU’s team.
