Trehalose is a non-reducing disaccharide consisting of two glucose molecules linked by an α, α–1,1 bond. Pfanstiehl Brand, High Purity Low Endotoxin Trehalose is used in the biopharmaceutical industry to stabilize proteins, lipids, and carbohydrates throughout the formulation and freeze/thaw life cycle of therapeutics. It is also widely applied as a key component in cryopreservation/freeze media to stabilize cell membranes and improve the recovery and robustness of cells used for bioproduction and cell therapy.
The stabilizing benefits of trehalose include but are not limited to:
• Monoclonal Antibodies (mAbs)
• Fusion Proteins
• Antibody Fragments (fAbs)
• Stem cells
Pfanstiehl Brand Trehalose is available as USP-NF (United States Pharmacopoeia—National Formulary), EP (European Pharmacopoeia) and JP (Japanese Pharmacopoeia) and ChP (Chinese Pharmacopoeia).Pfanstiehl also holds a US DMF for the Trehalose (T-104-4) product.
Sucrose is a non-reducing crystalline disaccharide made up of glucose and fructose, found in many plants but extracted as ordinary sugar mainly from sugar cane and sugar beets. Pfanstiehl Brand, High Purity Low Endotoxin Sucrose is used in the biopharmaceutical industry to stabilize proteins, lipids, and carbohydrates throughout the formulation and freeze/thaw life cycle of therapeutics. It is also widely applied as a cryopreservative and media supplement in a variety of cell-based bioprocesses. It is preferred to trehalose in applications where solubility and/or viscosity issues are paramount.
The benefits of sucrose include but are not limited to:
• Monoclonal Antibody(mAbs) stabilization
• Media Supplementation
• Antibody Drug Conjugate (ADC) stabilization
• Peptide stabilization
• Stem cell preservation
• Vaccines stabilization
Pfanstiehl Brand Sucrose is available as USP-NF (United States Pharmacopoeia—National Formulary), EP (European Pharmacopoeia) and JP (Japanese Pharmacopoeia) and ChP (Chinese Pharmacopoeia). Pfanstiehl also holds a US DMF for the Sucrose (S-124-2-MC) product.
Mannitol is classified as a sugar alcohol and is derived from a sugar (mannose) by reduction. Other widely known polyols are xylitol and sorbitol. Mannitol and sorbitol are isomers, differing only in the orientation of the hydroxyl group on carbon two. The physical properties of mannitol make it suitable for use as a bulking agent in tableting. However, it also has unique chemical properties that enable it to stabilize a wide variety of pharmaceutical preparations, including liquid formulations, as well as protect proteins from denaturation/degradation upon lyophilization, spray drying, and reconstitution.
Pfanstiehl Brand High Purity Low Endotoxin Mannitol was developed specifically for biopharmaceutical use, to the highest quality and purity standards. It has been utilized as a key component to stabilize proteins during formulation, freeze drying, and finish/fill applications.
The various benefits imparted by Mannitol include but are not limited to:
• Enhanced Protein Therapeutic Stability
• Vaccine Stabilization
• Carrier in Lyophilized & Spray Dried Formulations
Pfanstiehl Brand Mannitol is available as USP-NF (United States Pharmacopoeia—National Formulary), EP (European Pharmacopoeia), JP (Japanese Pharmacopoeia) and ChP (Chinese Pharmacopoeia).
