Biochem/physiol Actions

TiterMax Classic has been especially formulated with squalene to produce stable water-in-oil emulsions with up to 90% water. It is considerably easier to emulsify TiterMax Classic than Freund’s adjuvant. The resulting emulsion is less viscous, making it easier to inject through small needles.


For mice, four doses of 10 microl each into subcutaneous or muscular sites is recommended. TiterMax® was used in mice followed by isolation of CD4 T cells for epitope mapping and to test vaccines against Neisseria species.

General description

The effectiveness of an oil emulsion vaccine greatly depends on the form and stability of the emulsion. TiterMax Classic is a water-in-oil formulation with up to 90% water and a powerful adjuvant used in many protocols. TiterMax Classic Adjuvant contains three essential ingredients: a block copolymer, CRL89-41, squalene (a metabolizable oil) and a unique microparticulate stabilizer. The emulsion is less viscous and suitable for injection through small needles.
