Bacto Peptone is an animal origin (AO) enzymatic digest of bovine and porcine animal proteins. The nutritive value of Bacto Peptone is largely dependent on a combination of a negligible quantity of proteases, high concentration of complex constituents, and a unique amino acid content that makes this peptone a strong nitrogen source. Customers have successfully used this supplement with a variety of cell types including Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Escherichia coli, Pasteurella multocida, Vibrio cholerae, and porcine kidney cells to produce biotherapeutics and vaccines for animal health applications.
