Polysucrose 400, synthetic sucrose polymer (ab146570)

Overview

  • Product name

    Polysucrose 400, synthetic sucrose polymer
  • Description

    Nonionic synthetic polymer of sucrose.
  • Alternative names

    • Ficoll 400
    • Polysucrose-400
  • Biological description

    Synthetic high molecular weight polymer made by the copolymerization of sucrose and epichlorohydrin. The molecules have a branched structure with a high content of hydroxyl groups giving a good solubility in aqueous solutions. Used for the density gradient separation of cells, cell membranes and virus cells. It can also be used to isolate different organelles. Has been used in a study to develop a new method for the purification of human motile spermatozoa.

Properties

  • Storage instructions

    Store at Room Temperature. Store under desiccating conditions. The product can be stored for up to 12 months.
  • Solubility overview

    Soluble in water to 100 mg/ml

  • Handling

    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.
