Human Factor VIII produced from Human Plasma contains 2332 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 330kDa. Factor-VIII is effective in the correction and prevention of severe bleeding episodes attributed to Factor VIII deficiency.
The Factor-VIII is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
The lyophilized protein 200IU/ml was lyophilized from a sterile solution containing 1.5% Glycine, 160mM Calcium chloride and 25mM NaCitrate and 25mM NaCl.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Factor-VIII in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O at a concentration of 200IU/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Make sure that the vial has reached room temperature prior to its reconstitution, otherwise it might precipitate.
Lyophilized Factor-VIII although stable at room temperature for 1 week, should be stored desiccated between 2-8°C. Upon reconstitution Factor-VIII should be stored at 4°C.
Human Virus Test
The plasma is collected from donors with Hepatitis B vaccinated.
Each unit of plasma has been tested for HBsAg, Anti-HIV-1/2 plus O and Anti-HCV by using the imported kits which are approved by Federal Drug Administration (FDA).
The potency was found to be 10 Units/mg.
