Ready-to-load DPPC Liposomes with Ammonium Tartrate

Liposomal drug formulations provide great opportunities of improving the drug efficacy and toxicity profiles.  Drug molecules with amine groups such as doxorubicin and ciprofloxacin, etc. can be loaded by ammonium-based pH gradient.  The Ready-to-load DPPC Liposomes with Ammonium Tartrate (Catalog number DPC100AT) are high quality non-PEGylated liposomes that are ready to load drug molecules containing amine groups. The drug loading process is completed in about 3 hours after mixing the drug with the liposomes. The composition of the liposomes is DPPC and cholesterol in the weight ratio of 1.9:1. The total lipid concentration is 20 mg/ml. The liposomes are encapsulated with ammonium tartrate for drug remote loading.  The average size of liposomes is about 80 nm with poly dispersity index (dpi) of 0.1.

The Ready-to-load DPPC Liposomes with Ammonium Tartrate (Catalog number DPC100AT) includes 10 ml liposomes with 10 mg/ml lipid concentration. The mass ratio of lipids is DPPC: cholesterol = 1.9:1. The concentration of ammonium tartrate encapsulated within the liposomes for drug loading is 300 mM. The buffer is 10 mM histidine, pH 6.5, 9.2 % sucrose. Liposomes are stored in a 2°C to 8°C refrigerator.   DO NOT freeze liposomes.
