Sodium Hyaluronate is the sodium salt of hyaluronic acid (HA), also known as hyaluronan, a glycosaminoglycan consisting of D-glucuronic acid and N-acetyl-D-glucosamine disaccharide units. HA is one of several glycosaminoglycan components of the extracellular matrix of connective tissue. HA is a naturally occurring biopolymer involved in numerous biological processes including tissue hydration and structural scaffolding. HA is increasingly used as a reagent and investigated in medical, pharmaceutical and bioengineering applications. Its use as a reagent includes hydrogels for use in aesthetics, ophthalmology, rheumatology, urology, wound healing, and 3D bioprinting.
Our medical grade Sodium Hyaluronate is produced by HTL by fermentation of a Streptococcus equi strain (Group C of the Lancefield Classification / Non GMO / Without any material from animal origin). HTL’s proprietary process allows the production of Sodium Hyaluronate fiber with an exceptionally low level of impurities. HTL Sodium Hyaluronate raw material is a medical grade pharmaceutical product manufactured under cGMP conditions and is covered by a Certificate of Suitability of Monographs if the European Pharmacopoeia (CEP) and Drug Master File (DMF).
HTL Sodium Hyaluronate is aliquoted and distributed by Echelon for research use only.
MW range: 400-600 kDa (see Certificate of Analysis for lot specific MW)
Storage: dry product at 5 °C, protected from light and humidity. Solutions should be stored frozen at -20 °C or below.
