Application Details: Used as excipient in pharmaceutical drugs due to its stabilizing effect on proteins and its natural anti-bacterial properties. Lactic acid solutions are buffering in pH range 3.5-4.2, which makes them perfect for elution of antibodies off Protein-A sorbents. In published reports it has been reported that, pure lactic acid is one of the main components for IV resuscitation after blood loss due to trauma, surgery, or a burn injury. It is currently the gold standard test to start and monitor treatment for sepsis patients and also used as an excepient with pharmaceutical companies.

For use in the manufacture of Lactic Acid Blood Tests. This lactic acid test is usually used to see if lactic acid accumulation is causing acidosis (acidotic body state) symptoms.
