Stability and Reconstitution

Stability and Storage Lyophilized proteins are stable for 1 year from the date of receipt if stored between (-20°C) and (-80°C). Upon reconstitution we recommend that the solution can be stored at (4°C) for short term or at (-20°C) to (-80°C) for long term. Repeated freeze thaw cycles should be avoided with reconstituted products.
Reconstitution Briefly centrifuge the vial before opening. It is recommended to reconstitute the protein in sterile 1xPBS containing 0.1% endotoxin-free recombinant human serum albumin (HSA).

HumanKine® GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) recombinant proteins are manufactured and validated in accordance with ISO 13485 quality management system and is compliant with GMP.
Our GMP recombinant proteins are animal component free (ACF), xeno free (XF) and tag free (TF). Read more about these policies here.

Background

Granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF), also known as colony-stimulating factor 2 (CSF2), is a monomeric glycoprotein secreted by macrophages, T cells, mast cells, natural killer cells, endothelial cells and fibroblasts. GM-CSF is a hematopoietic growth factor that stimulates the development of early erythroid megakaryocytic and eosinophilic progenitor cells (PMID 2990035). GM-CSF stimulates stem cells to produce granulocytes (neutrophils, eosinophils, and basophils) and monocytes (PMID 3021817, 2984574, 6390681).
