Product Description: Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) in vial form, intended for “research purposes only,” is an exceptional product designed for cutting-edge scientific studies. HA, also known as hyaluronan, is a naturally occurring substance in the human body, most notably present in the skin, connective tissues, and eyes, where it helps retain collagen, increase moisture, and provide elasticity and flexibility (1).
The primary function of hyaluronic acid involves maintaining moisture levels in tissues, thanks to its unique ability to bind and retain water molecules. It is one of the most hydrophilic molecules in nature, with one gram of HA theoretically capable of holding up to six liters of water (2). This makes it an interesting research subject, particularly for studies investigating hydration at the cellular level.
In addition, hyaluronic acid is a vital part of the extracellular matrix (ECM), playing a crucial role in the proliferation, migration, and differentiation of cells (3). This has led researchers to explore its potential in wound healing and tissue regeneration studies, contributing to the scientific understanding of these processes.
Hyaluronic acid in vial form, prepared for research purposes, is produced through a careful and rigorous process to maintain its purity and integrity. It is derived through a fermentation process, typically using a strain of bacteria called Streptococcus zooepidemicus. This process ensures the absence of animal proteins, which reduces the risk of immunogenic reactions (4).
There has also been considerable research into the role of hyaluronic acid in inflammation and angiogenesis (5). As such, our product could serve as a key asset in investigations into these areas. It’s believed to have anti-inflammatory properties and to be involved in the regulation of angiogenesis, offering ample avenues for research.
Furthermore, hyaluronic acid has been linked to various skin benefits, according to scientific studies. It may help improve skin hydration, stimulate the production of collagen, and work to maintain skin elasticity (6). This makes it a compelling focus for research in the field of dermatology and cosmetics.
Several studies suggest that hyaluronic acid may also play a role in joint health. It is a major component of the synovial fluid, which lubricates and reduces friction between joints, and is present in the cartilage, where it helps resist compression (7). Therefore, it presents exciting opportunities for research in orthopedics.
Researchers have also turned their attention to the role of hyaluronic acid in ocular health. Its hydrating properties make it a significant factor in maintaining the shape, volume, and elasticity of the eyeball (8). As such, our HA in vial form provides an interesting tool for ophthalmological studies.
Our Hyaluronic Acid is available in a sterile, lyophilized form, offering prolonged stability and ease of storage. It is meticulously packaged in individual vials to maintain its quality and prevent contamination, thereby ensuring the reliability of your research results.
Our hyaluronic acid in vial form for research purposes undergoes strict quality control tests. We verify the molecular weight, purity, and potency of each batch to maintain consistent high quality. As a result, researchers can trust the consistency of their results across multiple experiments.
In conclusion, our Hyaluronic Acid in vial form provides an excellent tool for a broad range of scientific research areas. Whether your focus is cellular biology, dermatology, orthopedics, or ophthalmology, this product may help you uncover new insights and broaden the frontiers of knowledge.
