Neova Technologies Inc.

Neova Technologies Inc. draws on almost thirty years of expertise in bioseparation and protein fractionation, building its international reputation on quality and service. Neova takes an integrated approach to product development and quality enhancement. With a strong history in research and development to support the products we sell, our approach is to seek practical solutions that regularly challenge current limits and assumptions. Neova’s strong team of researchers understands the functionality that our products can bring to the different industries and applications that our customers represent. Some research projects are undertaken with the objective of publication for the benefit of the industry, while others are carried out for the benefit of a single customer. Regardless, the same systematic approach to the research applies. In addition, our customers are critical in establishing market needs and identifying opportunities. We collaborate and work with our customers to identify new products and applications. Our operations and production group is a third critical partner in research and product development. This group is involved throughout the product design and improvement process, ensuring that the product the customer needs can be delivered consistently and meets the specifications the customer requires. The results: Neova delivers solutions that are custom-designed to meet the needs of our customers. A rigorous approach to research and a strong quality-centered operational environment ensures that quality is not compromised for speed or expense.

Pancreatic Enzymes

Pancreatic enzymes are naturally occurring proteins that play an important role in the digestion of food. They hydrolyze various proteins and lipids using the same natural process as the human digestive system. Trypsin and chymotrypsin are classified as serine proteases with specific cleaving characteristics. Trypsin preferentially hydrolyzes bonds whose carboxyl groups are contributed by lysine (Lys) or arginine (Arg). Chymotrypsin hydrolyzes peptide bonds involving phenylalanine (Phe), tyrosine (Tyr), and tryptophan (Trp).  Phospholipase (PA2) is a standardized product that cleaves the fatty acid in the second position in phospholipids. These pancreatic enzymes hydrolyze various proteins and lipids using the same natural process as the human digestive system. Neova’s experienced technical and processing advisors work with customers, developing blends and formulating products to suit specific needs. The applications list below serves as a starting point. Except for Phospholipase A2, all pancreatic enzymes are lyophilized (freeze-dried), resulting in enhanced solubility and minimal dust.

Egg Proteins

Naturally occurring egg-white proteins are extracted and purified from the hen egg, where they prevent bacterial growth, bind metal ions and vitamins, and act as a nutrient source for the developing chicken embryo. For many industries, Neova uses proprietary extraction and purification processes to produce egg-white proteins. Avidin is used in immunodiagnostics because of its strong affinity for biotin (vitamin H). In many applications, ovalbumin may be a very effective and preferable choice over Bovine Serum Albumin. Likewise, ovotransferrin is very similar to both human and bovine-derived transferring, including lactoferrin, and can be substituted in many instances. Ovomucoid is a natural trypsin inhibitor. As such, it is commonly used as a replacement for serum trypsin inhibitors in tissue culture research.
