pure tetrodotoxin extracted from pufferfish, for reagent selling and mass pharmaceutical research, pure and with citrate buffer
Brief of the tetrodotoxin
The word "tetrodotoxin" is derived from the order of fish, tetraodontidae, which means "four-toothed". The fish got this name because they have 4 very strong teeth that almost fuse together to form a beak-like structure. They use this "beak" to crack shells open to get food, as well as to chew. Among the puffer fish in this order are: the fahaka puffer, the Congo puffer, and the giant mbu puffer.

Only at the end of Spring of each year, Only in some certain areas in China, some certain kind of puffer fish, contains enough tetrodotoxin(ttx) for commercial extract and purification.
Tetrodotoxin (TTX) is a potent neurotoxin, specifically blocking voltage-gated sodium (Na)channels on the surface of nerve membranes.
Tetrodotoxin (TTX) had been tested for the experimental treatment of opium withdrawal in animal models. Potentially TTX Highly purified TTX represents a potential non-addictive systemic analgesic and long-acting anesthetic for human.
