- Biopharming" is an
experimental application of biotechnology in which plants are genetically
engineered to produce pharmaceutical proteins or industrial chemicals that
they would never produce naturally.
crops are regulated by two federal agencies (USDA and FDA) and by state
departments of agriculture.
Biopharming is done largely in
secret, with information withheld from the public and independent
scientists, we do know that efforts have been made to have plants produce
contraceptives, potent growth hormones, blood clotters, blood thinners,
industrial enzymes and vaccines.
Two new filtration
technologies to improve production throughput for protein-based biotech
drugs are available. They are SuporŽ UEKV and FluorodyneŽ EX high-flow
sterilizing grade cartridge filters are hybrids that offer solutions to
processing challenges. Sterilizing-grade filters are utilized throughout
the drug processing cycle from initial purification steps to final
formulation and filling to remove bacteria and other contaminants.
- Microbial bioprocessing can produce a myriad of valuable products.This
industry needs a small- or large-scale trials to test or advance a
bioprocessing technology, National Bioenergy Center (NBC) facilities at
the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Golden, Colorado, allow
to use world-class systems and expertise without the expense of building
own pilot plant.
- There are a number of ways through which
genetic engineering is accomplished. Essentially, the process has four
- Isolation of the genes of interest
- Insertion of the genes into a vector
- Transformation of cells of organism to be
- Tests to isolate genetically modified organism
Biopharm companies hope that
growing drugs and chemicals in plants will be cheaper than conventional
production methods through replacement of high-cost production
facilities with the flexibility of low-cost contract farmers, which
would mean higher profits.
Some 400 biopharm products are
reportedly in the pipeline, and over 300 open-air field trials have
already been conducted in unidentified locations across the United
