Nova-BioRubber successfully completes hypoallergenicity tests  its biolatex

Nova-BioRubber completed hypoallergenicity tests of their sustainably produced biolatex with excellent results. The third party testing agency – Akron Rubber Development Lab – issued official test results for two biolatex samples demonstrating antigenic protein content below detection. This is significant as it provides product
manufacturers the ability to deliver hypoallergenic and sustainable (plant-based) latex/rubber products, said Nova-BioRubber.

Biolatex is produced from annual rubber plant Taraxacum kok-saghyz (TKS) in British Columbia, Canada. TKS
takes only 4 months to grow and contains up to 24% rubber and 40% inulin (a dietary fibre).
Dr. Jeff Martin, CEO of Yulex Corporation agrees. “These are excellent results and quite
encouraging. Developments like these are in complete alignment with Yulex’s vision of protecting and
improving the health of people and the planet by replacing petroleum-based and toxic materials with safe,
plant-based specialty natural rubber and energy.”
“It’s great to get these results,” said Dr. Anvar Buranov, CEO of Nova-BioRubber. “Many products, and the
way they are produced, are going to significantly change. We’re going to see many more non-allergenic and
non-odorous biolatex and biorubber products introduced to the market, including critical medical products
like gloves and catheters, as well as other products like latex mattresses, pillows, yoga mats, condoms,
wetsuits, swim caps, balloons, and much, much more.”
Dr. Buranov continues, “We’re particularly proud of our sustainable methods of production. We extract our
biorubber, biolatex and inulin from the annual rubber plant TKS using a patented green process that is a
unique combination of mechanical forces in a dry medium, resulting in energy savings, labour costs, and
reduced water consumption. The process also has no chemical emissions.”
Third party evaluation reports and testing results from both Akron Rubber Development Lab and the
National Research Council of Canada are available on request, said the company.
