Galactose (NAD)

7th September 2018


Galactose is a monosaccharide sugar of the hexose class that is a constituent of lactose and many polysaccharides.

It is found in milk, sugar beets, gums, and mucilages. It is also synthesized in humans, and is a constituent of glycolipids and glycoproteins.

Galactose is finding an ever-increasing use as a cell metabolism modulator in the optimization of protein therapeutics bioproduction.

Pfanstiehl brand high-purity low endotoxin (HPLE) Galactose (NAD) was developed specifically for biopharmaceutical use, to the highest quality and purity standards. It has been utilised as a key, chemically defined component to optimise protein production while mitigating lactate and ammonia formation.

The various benefits imparted by Galactose (NAD) in bioproduction include but are not limited to:

•   Improved regulatory compliance

•   Reduced lactate and ammonia production

•   Increased target protein production

•   Clean and consistent media

•   Impurity profile

Pfanstiehl brand Galactose is available as USP/NF (United States Pharmacopoeia-National Formulary), EP (European Pharmacopoeia).
