Most commercially available collagenases are derived by fermentation of the natural collagenase producing bacteria species Clostridium histolyticum.
The strain of C. histolyticum, used in the manufacturing of our collagenase products, has been carefully selected for the production of large amounts of collagenases and balanced amounts of other proteolytic activities like neutral protease and clostripain.
As a pathogen, C. histolyticum uses these enzymatic activities to infect a potential host by digesting the extracellular matrix proteins of connective tissues. Therefore, the natural composition of these enzymes (collagenase class I and class II, neutral protease and clostripain) is already optimized by nature for most efficient tissue dissociation resulting in a high yield of viable cells.
Every application of collagenases places different demands on optimal digestion conditions. Nordmark collagenase products include the range from standard collagenases, containing balanced amounts of other proteolytic activities, to highly purified collagenases in research or GMP grades, respectively. Therefore,our collagenase products are particularly suitable for various cell isolation applications.
Animal-Free (AF) products are our superior enzymes designed to provide the highest possible safety for clinical applications. A plant-based production process and the use of carefully selected materials ensure that there is no commingling with components of animal origin. Thus, any risk of introducing potential animal-derived pathogens is avoided in the first place. Furthermore, the sophisticated production process ensures that there is no cross-contamination with any animal-derived materials. The animal-free enzymes are produced in compliance with GMP guidelines that guarantees the highest quality and a reliable lot-to-lot consistency. Therefore, these enzymes provide the highest level of safety and reduced regulatory hurdles.
Collagenase AF-1 GMP Grade and Neutral Protease AF GMP Grade represent the first choice for clinical isolation of especially sensitive cells like pancreatic islets, hepatocytes and dental pulp.
