General description

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a a natural polymer found in many extracellular matrices (ECM). Its biocompatibility, biodegradability, and biomimetic chacteristics make it one of the most advantagous biopolymers for myriad of biomedical applications including drug delivery, tissue engineering, hydrogel development, cosmetics, regenerative medicine and 3D bioprinting.
Unlike other HA products which are typically available in a sodium salt form, HA acid form is soluble in organic solvents such as DMSO. This allows for a larger range of possible chemical modifications and functionalization. For instance, the carboxylic acid of the glucoronic acid can be modified or functionalized with hydrazine end groups.

Application

  • Tissue engineering including cartilage tissue engineering, bone tissue engineering, and other musculoskeletal tissues
  • Drug delivery and a carrier of small molecules, large molecules, and biomolecules
  • Biosensors, films and transdermal microneedles development
  • Medical device coatings, wound healing, and cosmetics

Features and Benefits

  • The same advantages of HA but in acid form
  • Soluble in organic solvents such as DMSO
  • Larger range of chemical modifications and functionalization possibilities

Lot and Batch Numbers can be found on a product's label following the words 'Lot' or 'Batch'.

Aldrich Products

  • For a lot number such as TO09019TO, enter it as 09019TO (without the first two letters 'TO').

  • For a lot number with a filling-code such as 05427ES-021, enter it as 05427ES (without the filling-code '-021').

  • For a lot number with a filling-code such as STBB0728K9, enter it as STBB0728 without the filling-code 'K9'.
