About Bovogen Biologicals

Bovogen Biologicals is a privately-owned company based in Melbourne, Australia, that researches, manufactures and supplies highly purified animal proteins, enzymes and animal serum products to the global pharmaceutical, diagnostics and life science communities.

Mission Statement

Bovogen Biologicals aims to be a leading global manufacturer of biological fine chemicals derived from bovine by-products or related raw materials.

Our mission is to guarantee that the quality of our products will meet and exceed our specifications each and every time. We also take pride in our ability to surpass customer expectations for quality, product delivery and service. Bovogen Biologicals' culture is to become an industry partner with our customers, not just a supplier.

Company Overview

Bovogen Biologicals was established in 2001 by Rick Clements for the purpose of manufacturing Australian origin Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) utilising a proprietary Heat Shock Process.

Since that time, Bovogen Biologicals has expanded considerably in response to the needs of their global customer base, to offer an extensive range of Australian or New Zealand origin purified animal proteins which include Bovine Immunoglobulin, Fibrinogen, Fetuin, Transferrin, Dried Plasma and Haemoglobin and Placenta Extracts.

In support of this exponential growth Bovogen Biologicals' GMP manufacturing facility has more than tripled in size with the addition of an industrial capacity freeze drying suite which is available for contract manufacturing and a purpose built sterile filtration facility where Australian or New Zealand origin Foetal Bovine Serum, (FBS), Newborn Calf Serum (NBCS), Adult Bovine Serum (ABS) and other animal sera such as porcine, ovine and equine, are processed.

Manufactured in Australia under strict GMP, Bovogen Biologicals ensures that their products meet the highest quality standards by using only Australian or New Zealand origin animal derived raw materials, collected from USDA & EU approved facilities. Being of Australian or New Zealand origin, as verified by the availability of complete animal traceability records, products manufactured by Bovogen Biologicals are free of the risk of contamination from any major epidemic diseases, such as BSE & Foot and Mouth Disease which are known to infect livestock in other regions.

This assurance of quality is recognized widely around the world throughout the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, where Bovogen Biologicals' products are used in applications from vaccine manufacturing to veterinary diagnostics. Based on its foundation of research and development, Bovogen Biologicals remains committed to working with the biopharmaceutical community through contract manufacturing, collaborative research projects and the formation of industry partnerships and looks forward to continuing to meet its customers' needs for animal derived biologicals.
