SBE-β-CD, also known as SBE-beta-CD and Sulfobutylether beta-cyclodextrin, is a polyanionic beta-cyclodextrin derivative with a sodium sulfonate salt separated from the lipophilic cavity by a butyl ether spacer group, or sulfobutylether (SBE). Sulfobutylether beta-cyclodextrin was rationally designed to maximize safety and optimize interaction to improve the solubility, stability, bioavailability or lessen volatility, irritation, smell or taste.

How to use

In Vitro:

SBE-β-CD is a chemically modified β-CD that is a cyclic hydrophilic oligosaccharide which is negatively charged in aqueous media. β-CD functioned is a solubilizer only at low concentrations, whereas SBE7-β-CD exhibits strong solubilizing effects over a wide concentration range.

In Vivo:

20% SBE-β-CD in saline: Guidelines (Following is our recommended protocol. This protocol only provides a guideline, and should be modified according to your specific needs). 1. Dissolve 0.9 g of NaCl in 100 mL distilled water to make a clear 0.9% saline solution. 2. Measure 2 g of dry SBE-β-CD. 3. Dissolve 2 g of SBE-β-CD in 0.9% saline to make 10 mL with a 20% (w/v) concentration. These may require ultrasonic (20-40 kHz, 30 seconds, repeat 3 times) or heating (37°C for about 30 minutes). If precipitation is observed, the precipitates can be dissolved by heating to 37°C and vortexing before use.
