Stock solutions of crude Collagenase may be prepared at 10 mg/ml of Collagenase in TESCA buffer (50 mM TES, 0.36 mM calcium chloride, pH 7.4 at 37°C) and are stable if frozen quickly in aliquots and kept frozen at -20°C. Freeze-thaw cycles will damage the enzyme.
For use in tissue culture applications, Collagenase can be solubilized in calcium-free solutions such as Hanks Balanced Salts (H2387) or Earl's' Balanced Salt Solution (E6267).
The activity and specific activity for each lot number can be obtained from the certificate of analysis.
This Collagenase is obtained from the culture filtrate of Clostridium histolyticum. The culture filtrate is thought to contain at least 7 different proteases ranging in molecular weight from 68 - 130 kDa. It does not contain any Matrix Metalloprotease.
This product does not consist of a sterile preparation of Collagenase. Upon reconstitution, solutions should be sterile filtered through a 0.22 micron filter.
