Stability and Reconstitution

Stability and Storage Lyophilized proteins are stable for 1 year from the date of receipt if stored between (-20°C) and (-80°C). Upon reconstitution we recommend that the solution can be stored at (4°C) for short term or at (-20°C) to (-80°C) 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 1xPBS pH 7.4 containing 0.1% endotoxin-free recombinant human serum albumin (HSA).


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).
