About DENARASE®

How it works
DENARASE® specifically hydrolyzes the phosphodiester bonds between nucleotides leaving smaller fragments of around 3-5 base pairs. The enzyme is active on all forms of nucleic acids including single-stranded, double-stranded, linear, circular or supercoiled. Best results are obtained when the enzyme is added before the release of DNA.

Production of DENARASE
DENARASE® has been developed for use in commercial manufacturing processes of biologicals and complies with EU GMP regulations. The patented production process uses a gram-positive Bacillus sp. production host, which minimizes the risks of endotoxins in the product. No antibiotics, materials with TSE/BSE risk or raw materials of animal origin are employed in the manufacture of the product.

DENARASE® is available in two quality grades:

DENARASE® for Research and Development (R&D) use & 
DENARASE® for manufacturing under GMP.

  • DENARASE® GMP-grade is manufactured under EU GMP conditions

  • DENARASE® R&D-grade is produced in conformity with the ISO 9001 standard, with less strict requirements regarding documentation, storage and distribution

  • From a technical performance perspective, both quality grades are equal and the parameters on the specification are the same. This allows for a seamless transition from early R&D stage towards biopharmaceutical manufacturing under GMP.

  • In order to avoid mix-ups, packaging units of the same size are indicated differently in the product name of the two quality standards: 1000/5000 kU for R&D-grade DENARASE® and 1/5 MU for GMP-grade DENARASE®.
