Not sure what you mean by 'synthetic' erythropoietin.  Procrit or Epogen are 'recombinant' or man-made products that contain albumin, a human blood fraction.  There is another erythropoietic product called Aranesp that is made using a polysorbate (plant) formulation and does not contain human albumin.  So if I understand your question correctly, the bloodless substance you are asking about would be plant-derived material (Polysorbate 80).
