Ultrafiltered Chicken Embryo Extract is used as a supplement in some growth media formulations. It is prepared by mixing 11-14 day old chicken embryos in a balanced salt solution (3 times the volume of the embryo). The solution is centrifuged to remove larger particles and debris. The supernatant is subjected to an ultrafiltration step with a molecular weight limit of 10 kD to remove the protein from the solution, producing a clear amber liquid.

This liquid is sterilized by filtration. The animals come from a specific USDA-registered facility that uses a veterinarian-inspected flock. Final processing in an ISO9000 facility. Chicken embryo extract, ultrafiltered does not contain protein. It does not support the growth of viruses.
