The product has been cell culture tested, optimized and comes with EMPROVE® EXPERT polymer dossiers to help manufacturers meet regulatory requirements for risk assessment.

Key benefits of Poloxamer 188 EMPROVE® EXPERT cell culture include:

  • Superior performance when compared to different suppliers, batches and quality grades.
  • Lot-to-lot consistency.
  • Shear protection assay as release criteria.
  • Complete GMP documentation with EMPROVE® dossiers.
