Akron’s Heparin Sodium Salt is manufactured, tested, and released following relevant cGMP guidelines and is supported by a Type II Master File (MF) which the FDA can reference during your drug or biologic application process. It is a non-sterile bulk active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) and an intermediary for the final formulation of pharmaceutical heparin. Heparin is used as an anti-coagulant in cell culture media, inactivating several key clotting factors. Akron’s Heparin Sodium Salt is an unfractionated hygroscopic powder extracted from porcine intestinal mucosa and is freely soluble in water. It is composed of polymers of alternating derivatives of D-glucosamine (N-sulfated, O-sulfated, or N-acetylated) and uronic acid (O-sulfated) joined by glycosidic linkages.
