Octreotide acetate is a longer acting synthetic octapeptide analog of naturally occurring somatostatin. It inhibits the secretion of gastro-entero-pancreatic peptide hormones and the release of growth hormone.
Octreotide Human Synthetic is a single， non-glycosylated， polypeptide chain containing 8 amino acids， having a molecular mass of 1019.26 Dalton and a molecular formula of C49H66N10O10S2.
Octreotide is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Lyophilized Octreotide although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks， should be stored desiccated below -18℃. Upon reconstitution Octreotide should be stored at 4℃ between 2-7 days and for future use below -18℃.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein （0.1% HSA or BSA）.
Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
