Dermatophagoides farinae whole culture
Whole culture of Dermatophagoides farinae. Freeze-dried whole culture which consists of all the materials of the house dust mite cultivation such as mite bodies, eggs, larvae, skin parts, cultivation medium and the excrements. Whole cultures of Dermatophagoides farinae are mostly used as raw materials in the pharmaceutical production of vaccines and in vivo diagnostics.
The whole mite cultures are produced by freeze drying a mite culture, in this case the D. farinae house dust mite. A whole culture consist of all the materials of the house dust mite cultivation, including mite bodies, eggs, larvae, skin parts, cultivation medium and the excrements. From egg to mite there are different stadia. Whole culture contains all components which are also present within households. In real life, atopic patients respond to the whole culture of house dust mites. Patients respond especially to the excrements of the mites, the size of excrements is between 20 and 60µm. With this size the particles are floating in the air. Citeq produces a controlled cultivation of house dust mites. Whole Cultures of Dermatophagoides farinae are mostly used as raw materials in the pharmaceutical production of vaccines and in vivo diagnostics.
The D. farinae (HDM) whole culture will be delivered in a vial of 1 gram of freeze-dried fine powder.
- We also have D. farinae available in the following forms: D. farinae purified and D. farinae extracts.
Our main focus is the production of house dust mites (HDMs) and their allergens. Citeq was born based on a passion for mites and the research for how mites influence our daily lives. Our specialty starts with our cultivation medium which has an absolute low in foreign protein. Our cultivation technique leads to high concentrations of the major allergens, resulting in strong raw materials, extracts in several grades of purity, and very pure major allergens. All our house dust mite products contain the native proteins, with no denaturing treatments during production and purification.
Whole culture vs Mite bodies
Both materials, whole cultures as well as mite bodies are active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) starting materials. This means these materials can be used for further processing such as extraction procedures under GMP pharmaceutical requirements by, for example, allergen vaccine producers and diagnostic companies. The responsibility for the extraction procedure under GMP lies with our clients. Our quality systems incorporate the important aspects of GMP standards to meet regulations and make sure that you will receive source material with the best fit for your application.
