As leader in surfactant chemistry and surfactant systems, BASF Biopharma Ingredients is using our expertise in chemistry to overcome challenges and improve manufacturing of biopharmaceuticals. Now BASF Biopharma Ingredients introduces the next generation poloxamer for shear protection.

Our technical teams can provide information on both surfactant chemistry and their use in bioprocessing. Further, we have poloxamer experts and access to the global BASF Scientific Network, which we use for tackling the bigger challenges.

If you have challenges with surfactants, we can help. Ask us how.

High Purity Poloxamer Family Designed For Biologics Manufacturing

Cell cultures used in biologics manufacturing have stringent requirements that must be met in order to ensure high cell viability and consistent biologic drug yield. For protection from shear stress, poloxamer 188 (P188) has a long publication history as well as documented use in the manufacturing of approved biologics.

With over 50 years of experience in EO/PO chemistry, BASF has developed two outstanding products designed to meet your needs in quality, consistency, and performance in cell culture systems. Kolliphor® P 188 Bio and Kolliphor® P188 Cell Culture both offer consistent performance, which lowers manufacturing risk, enhanced packaging, validated testing to ensure the highest purity, and monograph compliance with a shared Drug Master File.

As the leader in shear protection, Kolliphor® P188 Bio is one of the most widely used poloxamers commercially available. Building on the worldwide adoption of Kolliphor® P188 Bio, we introduce our newest product, Kolliphor® P188 Cell Culture, which is designed to meet a tighter molecular weight specification, delivering excellent performance in a broader range of cell culture bioprocesses. Both products display very consistent performance and are supported to an extremely high level by all BASF Pharma Solutions functions.
