Sodium Caprylate is a medium chain fatty acid. In the pharmaceutical industry Sodium Caprylate may be used for protection, separation and precipitation of proteins, and is frequently used in blood fractionation as a stabilizer to retain biological activity of pharmaceutical proteins such as human albumin solutions during pasteurization.
