Octreotide is a single, non-glycosylated, synthetic polypeptide chain. It contains 8 amino acids and has a molecular mass of 1019.26 Dalton. Octreotide is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
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.
CAS Registry No.
Amino Acid Sequence
Synthetic peptide hormone
Purity greater than 98.0% as determined by RP-HPLC.
Sterile-filtered white lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder. The Octreotide was lyophilized from a concentrated (1 mg/ml) solution with no additives.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Octreotide in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100 µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Ships at ambient temperature. Upon receipt, store the product at the temperature recommended below.
Lyophilized Octreotide, although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution, Octreotide should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA). Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
