Merck's Certified High Quality Peptones and Extracts for Biotech Fermentation Processes
Merck Millipore offers high quality peptones as well as extracts from meat and yeast for fermentation processes in lab and production scale quantities to the Biotech industry.
High quality peptones are key raw materials to support microbial growth because they serve as substrates for nitrogen and carbon in culture media. Peptones are complex products obtained from animal, plant or microbial origin by enzymatic or acid hydrolysis of proteins or raw materials with high protein content. For a high-yield fermentation, media often need to be supplemented with extracts prepared from meat and yeast as they contain important vitamins and other important growth factors. Such extracts are produced from water soluble fractions obtained by soaking meat or yeasts in water for a defined period of time and subsequent filtration to a clear solution. Besides their important application in culture media, it has also been shown that e.g. yeast extract has the potential to replace serum in cell culture media.
