With the successful opening of the Feilding location in February of 2016, Proliant now maintains and operates two Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) manufacturing facilities.
The Feilding facility was designed and constructed to replicate the "Closed Loop" system, developed and instituted in Proliant's U.S. facility located in Boone, Iowa. The equipment design and installation was done to functionally duplicate the systems in the U.S. facility, with critical processing systems coming from the same vendors used for U.S. installations.
To maintain consistency, the Feilding operation maintains the same vertically integrated raw material to finished product control that is used in the U.S. In regards to raw material supply, Proliant has come to terms on a long term supply agreement with the largest bovine packing company in New Zealand, Silver Fern Farms. As part of this agreement, Proliant is in control of all processes used in blood collection and maintains ownership of all processing equipment for separation of the blood to plasma, at each of the packing facilities used for collection.
