TCS BIOSCIENCES LTD, CHANGE NOTICE: CCI 23

It is our intention to change the Manufacturing Process of the products listed below. The details of the change and the reason for it are given below.

If you have any difficulties or concerns accepting the change, please contact us immediately.

Evaluation

A selection of strains was tested for capacity for revival throughout the stated shelf life of each strain, comparing vials some with silica gel and some without silica gel. The selection included the most fastidious organisms in the strain range. None of the strains showed reduced viability in the absence of silica gel.

Consideration

Because Selectrol productions are demand-driven, certain lower-demand strain vials will continue to contain silica gel beyond the date of change; however, over time all strains will be provided without silica gel.

Product: Selectrol Freeze-Dried Cultures.

Proposed Change Date: From July 2017

Change Details:

Silica gel will no longer be added to Selectrol product vials from July 2017.

Reason for Change:

Blue silica gel contains cobalt chloride which is harmful to the environment and a potential hazard for users of the products. In keeping with our ISO 14001 accreditation, we are continually looking to reduce our impact on the environment. In addition, our recent shelf life studies have demonstrated that silica gel does not improve the longevity of the freeze dried discs.
