TMAO

Applications

  • Water soluble cryoprotectant

Features

  • A very versatile cryoprotectant for macromolecular crystals
  • Protein stabilizer
  • TMAO can be a viable alternative when conventional cryoprotectants fail
  • Low viscosity and low surface tension
  • Sterile filtered
  • Formulated in Type 1+ ultrapure water: 18.2 megaohm-cm resistivity at 25°C, < 5 ppb Total Organic Carbon, bacteria free (<1 Bacteria (CFU/ml)), pyrogen free (<0.03 Endotoxin (EU/ml)), RNase-free (< 0.01 ng/mL) and DNase-free (< 4 pg/µL)
