Stability and Reconstitution

Stability and Storage Lyophilized proteins are stable for 1 year from the date of receipt if stored between (-20oC) and (-80oC). Upon reconstitution we recommend that the solution can be stored at (4oC) for short term or at (-20oC) to (-80oC) for long term. Repeated freeze thaw cycles should be avoided with reconstituted products.
Reconstitution Briefly centrifuge the vial before opening. It is recommended to reconstitute the protein in sterile I xPBS containing 0.1% endotoxin-free recombinant human serum albumin (HSA).

Product Description

Animal-free Recombinant Human EPO is expressed in human 293 cells in a serum-free, chemically defined media. EPO has more abundant and diverse glycan profiles and exhibits a lower molecular mass and substantially higher content of neutral glycans than the CHO cell produced version. See “EPO Authentic Glycan Structure” article for more information on the comparison of glycan structure.


Erythropoietin (Epo) is a member of the EPO/TPO family. It is a secreted, glycosylated cytokine composed of four alpha helical bundles. Epo is found in the plasma and regulates erythrocyte production by promoting erythroid differentiation and initiating hemoglobin synthesis through activation of its cognate receptor (PMID 29458727). Epo also has neuroprotective activity against a variety of potential brain injuries and anti-apoptotic functions in several tissue types (PMID 11854521).
