Heparinase enzymes (heparin lyase enzymes) extracted from natural strains of Flavobacterium heparinum. Our heparinases are natural not recombinant enzymes, folding under normal cell conditions resulting in highly active products.
The specialist method of preparation gives baseline separation between the three heparinases producing very pure individual enzyme species.
In order to preserve high activity, the enzymes are supplied as frozen solutions and delivered world wide by international courier.
The enzymes are stabilized with 0.1-0.2% BSA (Sigma A4378), 0.22um-sterile filtered and dispensed into sterile vials.
The enzymatic degradation of heparin and/or heparan sulphate.
Suitable for USP Chemical Tests / ⟨207⟩ 1,6-Anhydro Derivative for Enoxaparin Sodium.
The package size for the Heparinase enzymes is defined in International Units (IU) – one international unit is “the amount of enzyme that will liberate 1.0 μmole of product per minute from a heparin or heparan sulphate substrate at 30º C” (Product is unsaturated saccharides)
