Thermolysin and BP Protease are entirely animal origin free.
A porcine gelatin peptone is used during the fermentation step of natural collagenase production. While this animal sourced material is required to stimulate collagenase production from the biosynthesis from the organism Clostridium histolyticum during anaerobic fermentation, it represents a very low adventitious agent risk as the media is sterilized at 121°C for 30 minutes prior to inoculation, which has been shown to inactivate many viruses.
The gelatin is removed during the purification process and no animal sourced materials are used in the remainder of the process.
Additional manufacturing details are available in product insert literature for each product.
