General description

Isopropyl Myristate (IPM) is a fatty acid ester, which is used as solvent in water-in-oil emulsion, oils and fatty based ointments. Membrane filtration is the Pharmacopoeia method of choice for sterility testing. Viscous products, such as creams and ointments, can be difficult to filter and hence, are normally diluted in a sterile solvent, such as IPM to improve the filterability of these samples.

Application

Isopropyl Myristate is used to dilute oils and oily solutions, ointments, and creams to facilitate membrane filtration.

Features and Benefits

  • Preparing IPM for microbiological testing is a hurdle for any QC laboratory. Sterility is usually achieved with a long and difficult filtration process. Our Sterile IPM is sterilized by Gamma-irradiation and can be used as any ready-to-use rinse fluid or culture media.
  • For sterility testing sterile IPM should be used in combination with Our Steritest® NEO “Green base” device (TZHVSL210).
