Lifecore Biomedical has a 40-year history producing products that have impacted more than 150 million patients worldwide. Our sodium hyaluronate (NaHy) is U.S.-manufactured using a microbial fermentation and purification process which sets the industry standard.
Batches are thoroughly mixed prior to rapid, efficient precipitation, yielding pure, uniform NaHy powder that is easy to handle and weigh accurately, providing precise formulation control.
Internal studies of our NaHy powder, using shear rates that are significantly higher than normal for standard formulation processes, demonstrate that molecular weight is well-maintained during high-shear mixing.*
Molecular Weight Maintained in Formulation
*30 min of mixing 0.5% wt HA did not result in substantial molecular weight change(<10% after 30 min of shear). Testing performed with IKA T-25 ULTRA-TURRAX® fitted with S25-18G attachment operated at 20,000 rpm( ≈ 40,000 s-1). ULTRA-TURRAX is a registered trademark of IKA-Werke, Germany.
