Poloxamer 188 finds wide application in the development and manufacturing process of pharmaceutical drug products. In liquid protein formulations, Poloxamer 188 (PLX188) is added to stabilize proteins against mechanical stress, ensuring the desired therapeutic activity and safety of biologics. In cell culture media, PLX188 is added as shear stress protector to prevent cell damage during the cultivation in bioreactor and guarantee optimal cell growth.
We will show how the performance of PLX188 in these applications can be affected by variations in molecular weight or hydrophobicity, observed among different batches or products.
