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
