Trehalose Products

Trehalose is a proven stabilizer that is effective for many proteins, enzymes and cell membranes. Life Sciences Advanced Technologies offers 2 grades of trehalose dihydrate powder, Trehalose Dihydrate Molecular Biology Grade, as well as a 1M sterile solution.

Advantages of Trehalose

Property Benefit
Non-reducing Does not react with amino acids or proteins.
Stabilizing Stabilizes many proteins and cell types at various temperatures and during freezing.  Reduces activity loss from storage and processing.
Protection during drying Can stabilize proteins and cells during and after drying.  Reduces loss of biological activity in lyophilization.
Protection from cold Can protect against denaturation/aggregation of some proteins at cold temperatures.  Reduces loss from storage and processing
Protection against heat Protects enzymes from heat inactivation in vitro and reduces formation of protein aggregates.  Allows storage and shipping at warmer conditions.  May eliminate the need to ship on dry ice and associated freight costs.
Thermoactivation of enzymes Stimulates activity of certain enzymes at higher temperatures.
