Trypsin is a pancreatic enzyme used extensively in tissue dissociation, cell harvesting and micro-biological media. Trypsin 1:250 is a refined trypsin preparation, derived from porcine pancreas, specifically designed as a low endotoxin material for cell culture applications and vaccines production.
The high purity of Trypsin 1:250 means that it is virtually free of side activities such as amylase. Trypsin 1:250 complies with the recommended purity requirements for food grade enzymes provided by the joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA), and the Food Chemical Codex (FCC).
In food applications, Trypsin 1:250 is ideal for hydrolysis of milk proteins. The endopeptidases in the preparation break down large proteins in milk into just the right size – maximizing solubility and reducing allergenicity, without compromising taste.
Preparations are available in lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder and range in colour from off-white to light beige.
