Product Description: Heparin Sodium Salt is a sulfated glycosaminoglycan that is widely used in research as an anticoagulant. It is a highly purified, natural product derived from porcine intestinal mucosa. Heparin Sodium Salt has a high negative charge density due to its sulfated groups, which allows it to bind to and activate antithrombin III, a natural inhibitor of blood clotting.
