What's Happening at Biova

Biova® LLC

Johnston, Iowa, USA (September 16, 2014)—Biova LLC, the world leader for water soluble egg membrane ingredients, has expanded their cutting-edge technology into a new neighborhood. 

The new Biova office at 10900 S. Clay Blair Blvd. in Olathe, Kan., is nestled in the Venture Accelerator at the Kansas Bioscience Park, next to some of the leading—and fastest growing—science and technology businesses in the United States. 

“Our expansion is so much more than elbow room,” said Matt Stegenga, Biova’s director of marketing. “There are great things happening at Biova. We wanted a scientific, collaborative community that understands the needs of growing technology companies. Kansas Bioscience Park checked all our boxes.”

The Kansas Bioscience Park is a thriving development focused on bioscience organizations working to improve and change lives. Organizations in the park can access bioscience and research expertise at nearby universities and medical centers.

The new Biova Olathe office will focus on managing the burgeoning product development and marketing operations for Biova’s egg membrane technologies and branded ingredients. 

Kathy Hockla, project manager, has been hired, joining Stegenga in Biova's new Olathe offices.

Biova’s manufacturing facility in Ames, Iowa, located at the Iowa State University Research Park, is also experiencing growth.  Additional hirings for this facility include the following people:

• Jake Beck, process manager;

• John Beckwith, quality control;

• Tai Misra, quality and compliance.

 

Johnston, Iowa, USA (May 14, 2013) — Biova® LLC, the leading supplier of water soluble egg membrane, has finalized an agreement with Maypro Industries® to be the preferred distributor of Biova’s ingredient portfolio in Japan and Taiwan.

 “Maypro is a proven industry leader,” said Matt Stegenga, Biova’s director of sales and marketing. “They recognize that BiovaFlex® and BiovaDerm® will fill important niches in their impressive portfolio of quality proprietary branded ingredients.  Joint health and skin health products are priorities for the consumer. Like us, Maypro believes in innovation—we love their experience and track record of success.”

Carthage, Missouri, and Johnston, Iowa, USA; October 30, 2012 — ESM Technologies, LLC (“ESM”) and Biova, LLC (“Biova”) have resolved their differences and have agreed that each can continue to market and sell their respective current products. Biova does not believe U.S. Patent No. 6,946,551 (“the ‘551 Patent”) was properly construed, is valid or infringed, but, to forego the need for further litigation or an appeal and to resolve the matter fully between the parties, Biova agrees that the claims as construed by the District Court would have covered Biova’s process, and the ‘551 Patent is valid and enforceable.
