Virodex™ TXR-1

Add to favourites

Macrogol Lauryl Ether 9 (Ph. Eur.), Polyoxyl 9 Lauryl Ether (USP) 

Virodex™ TXR-1 is a readily biodegradable, nonionic surfactant for viral inactivation and cell lysis, meeting the needs of biopharmaceutical applications as an effective and safe replacement for the traditional detergent, Triton™ X-100. As a next-generation, sustainable detergent, Virodex™ TXR-1, along with its excellent biological compatibility, is recommended to be used in the efficient biomanufacturing of recombinant proteins such as monoclonal antibodies, as well as plasma-derived therapies, viral vector-based therapies and more. 

Key Benefits 
- Readily biodegradable, sustainable and REACH-compliant  

- Meets cGMP EXCiPACT standards for the highest product quality in biopharmaceutical manufacturing 

- Compendial grade, in compliance with USP and Ph. Eur. monographs 

- Known use of chemistry by industry for viral inactivation, as well as known injectable use1

- Manufactured in a facility that sources all renewable electric, producing zero scope II emissions 

- No risk of nitrosamine formation  

- Improved biologic quality and lower biomanufacturing risk, enabling faster speed to market

- Equivalent virus inactivation and cell lysis characterization to Triton™ X-100, with better performance than three market alternatives

- Available pack sizes: 1 kg, 3 kg and 25 kg 

- Comes with additional COA testing: bacterial endotoxin, Total Aerobic Microbial Count (TAMC), and Total Yeast and Mould Count (TYMC)
