PROPERTY BENEFIT
Non-reducing Trehalose Solution does not react with amino acids or proteins. Safe to use.
Stabilizing In vitro, proteins and cell walls at various temperatures and during freezing – Reduces loss from storage and processing.
Protection during drying Trehalose Solution can stabilize proteins and cells during and after drying. Reduces loss in lyophilization.
Protection from Cold Trehalose Solution can protect against denaturation / aggregation of some proteins at cold temperatures. Reduces loss from storage and processing.
Protection against heat Trehalose Solution protects enzymes from heat inactivation in-vitro and reduces formation of protein aggregates. Allows storage and shipping at warmer conditions. May eliminate the need to ship on dry ice and associated freight costs.
