Main Products

Used in infusion fluidMALTOSE PH

Maltose is a disaccharide containing two glucose molecules. MALTOSE PH has a low endotoxin concentration making it particularly suited for injection and infusion.

Preserves higher order protein structureTREHALOSE SG

TREHALOSE SG is a low endotoxin product for injection. Stable under heat and acidity, this product stabilizes higher order protein structures during dehydration and freezing by replacing water molecules. TREHALOSE SG prevents cells and proteins from damage.

Acts as a strong binder and coating agentPULLULAN

Pullulan has excellent binding strength and film forming properties, which makes it suited for tablets and granules. Low oxygen permeability of PULLULAN maintains potency of active ingredients when used as a coating.
