Keyhole Limpet Hemocyanin (KLH) is the respiratory protein of the large California keyhole snail (Megathura crenulata) and comparable in its biological function to hemoglobin in vertebrates.
biosyn Arzneimittel GmbH has been producing native KLH as an active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) in a GMP-certified manufacturing process for over 10 years. Among other things, this guarantees high purity, low endotoxin content and high reproducibility for the customer. In addition, each batch is tested for the absence of hepatitis A, B, and C, as well as entero, noro and rota viruses.
The aspect of environmental protection also plays a central role in the patented manufacturing process. Thus, the hemolymph is obtained by non-lethal puncture and the snails are returned to their natural habitat after subsequent curation
