Ficogenic Broth®

WHAT IS IT?

WHAT IS IT?

It is a universal culture medium that is ideal for prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms, and is obtained from an enriched extract of microalgae (cyanobacteria).

FICOGENIC BROTH® is a trademark owned by BIOM, which has been registered with the INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY OFFICE OF THE EUROPEAN UNION (EUIPO Certificate).

Ficogenic Broth® is a real innovation in the culture media sector since it does not contain any substances of animal or plant origin (tissue extracts or infusions).

These microalgae are extremely nutrient-rich organisms, as they have a high protein content and high levels of vitamins, omega 3 fatty acids, etc.

Ficogenic Broth® is extremely rich in nutrients, and is perfect for biotechnological processes based on the use of microorganisms.

BENEFITS

BENEFITS

What is special about
this product?

It is completely free of components of animal and vegetable origin

It is a sustainable raw material source, and does not harm the environment. 100% vegan-friendly and 100% free of contaminants of animal origin such as prions (BSE/TSE).

High yields

It has high yields, both in terms of biomass production and in protein content, which is higher than in conventional media.

Universal medium adequate for all microorganisms

The formulation is optimized for the growth of yeasts and bacteria (obtaining very good results with the most delicate ones that do not grow on standard media).
Mammal cells are currently being tested, with promising results.

Sustainable biotechnological production

Ficogenic Broth® is ideal for the biotechnological production of proteins or other molecules. Higher levels of production can be obtained with lower costs.

Low
Fluorescence

Low fluorescence medium suitable for use in microscopy.

Use
friendly

The culture medium can be diluted and adjusted to the needs of the microorganisms that need to be grown.

Uses and applications

Research centres
and laboratories

Its high yields make it excellent for research work on proteins.
Another advantage is its greater creation of biomass, since it is ideal for a wide spectrum of microorganisms and yeasts. These range from the most common to those that need specific culture media (which usually contain animal components and are more expensive to produce).

Bacteria and yeast producing industries

It increases profitability ratios for:

  • Industries that produce proteins, such as various enzymes (from laundry detergents to food processing, etc.) that need high production levels with the minimum amount of culture medium.
  • Companies that produce bacteria such as lactic ferments, as well as non-food markets, due to the higher production levels obtained of biomass (cells).
  • Companies that need to customize the degree of dilution of the product to adjust it to the growth needs of their production processes.
Cell cultures

Good growth levels have been observed in two thirds of all cells researched to date. It could be a good alternative to a sector that is highly dependent on media containing bovine foetal serum (whose production is very expensive, unsustainable and raises ethical questions).
