Solubility in Water (g/L): 689

F.W.: 378.33 g/mol.

Trehalose Dihydrate is a non-reducing disaccharide used as an excipient in biotherapeutic applications. Its primary purpose is to protect the protein drug substance both in the liquid and frozen state. It provides tonicity, stabilization, cryo-protection and lyo-protection. Trehalose is superior to other sugars due to the rigidity of the alpha 1,1 bond. Trehalose is also more stable under high temperature and acidic conditions. Due to its non-reducing end, Trehalose does not react with other excipients such as amino acids or aldehydes.


BioSpectra's Trehalose Dihydrate meets or exceeds EP/BP, JP and NF specifications.
