January 15, 2016 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
January 15, 2016 - Hello Bio announced today the launch of low cost tetrodotoxin (TTX) a sodium channel blocker used by scientists carrying out electrophysiology techniques to investigate epilepsy, anxiety, Alzheimer's Disease and many more neurological conditions. Tetrodotoxin citrate (the water soluble form of tetrodotoxin) is a sodium channel blocker isolated form the Puffer fish. Neuroscientists and electrophysiologists use TTX as a tool to help reduce neuronal or muscular electrical activity.

Hello Bio has launched this essential research tool at up to half the price of other suppliers.

Tetrodotoxin and tetrodotoxin citrate join a range of affordable and high quality ion channel modulators which also includes Conotoxin GVIA, Conotoxin MVIIC, ZD 7288 and D-AP5.

"Tetrodotoxin and its water soluble salt, tetrodotoxin citrate have traditionally been available to researchers at a high price, or with high delivery charges. In keeping with our price pledge, we are pleased that we can bring a high quality source of this standard tool to researchers in Europe and the USA at much more affordable prices - helping researchers' budgets to go further."
