Product nameN-Acetyl-D-glucosamine, N-Acetyl derivative of glucosamine
DescriptionN-Acetyl derivative of glucosamine
Monosaccharide derivative of glucose found in polymers of bacterial cell walls, chitin, hyaluronic acids and various glycans. Used to identify, differentiate and characterize N-acetyl-β-D-hexoaminidase(s).
Storage instructionsStore at +4°C. Store under desiccating conditions. The product can be stored for up to 12 months.
Wherever possible, you should prepare and use solutions on the same day. However, if you need to make up stock solutions in advance, we recommend that you store the solution as aliquots in tightly sealed vials at -20°C. Generally, these will be useable for up to one month. Before use, and prior to opening the vial we recommend that you allow your product to equilibrate to room temperature for at least 1 hour.
