General description

Chemicals play an important role in the stabilization of a biologic drug during its manufacturing and formulation process – for instance, by preventing aggregation. We offer a wide range of high-quality stabilizers, buffers and salts to successfully purify and formulate your biomolecules. Specifically developed for high-risk applications, they are low in bioburden and endotoxins.
As part of our Emprove® Program, our raw materials are offered with extensive documentation facilitating compliance of your pharma and biopharma product, full supply chain transparency and risk mitigation. Our SAFC® portfolio of high-quality products for biopharmaceutical and pharmaceutical formulation and production withstands strict quality control procedures and is produced according to applicable cGMP guidelines.

Application

Sucrose is used as a stabilizer for the formulation of biomolecules.
We have developed a new filtration-based manufacturing process leading to a sucrose grade with unique quality characteristics: Sucrose Emprove® Expert Ph Eur, ChP, JP, NF is low in endotoxins and has extensively reduced levels of nanoparticulate impurities which can negatively influence the stability of biomolecule formulations, making it the ideal choice for your high-risk applications.

Protocols

Low-in-Nanoparticulate-Impurities Sucrose for Biopharmaceutical Formulations

Nanoparticulate impurities (NPIs) in pharmaceutical-grade sucrose reduce the stability of final protein formulations. Applying a purification process results in a low NPI sucrose, thus mitigating risk during formulation development.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
