John Power has resigned from the board of directors of Camarillo-based BioSource International Inc. Power, president of the Redwood MicroCap Fund Inc., an investment firm, had been a BioSource director since August, 1993.

In resigning, he said Redwood was increasing its management role in a number of its business investments, reducing the time that he could devote to the Camarillo company. His resignation was effective Dec. 31.

BioSource, founded in 1989, is a supplier of immunological reagents and test kits used in biomedical research. The company offers more than 600 products.

Power’s departure leaves three directors on the BioSource board: James Chamberlain, the firm’s chairman and chief executive; Leonard M. Hendrickson, president of Isotope Products Laboratories of Burbank, and John R. Overturf Jr., vice president of the Rockies Fund, a closed-end stock fund based in Colorado Springs, Colo.
