Novo Nordisk Pharmatech has become the leading supplier of insulin for cell culture processes by providing excellence at every step of the supply chain – beginning with the quality of its insulin, which is sourced directly from Novo Nordisk, the world’s largest producer. Its recombinant insulin is a key component in serum free growth media for mammalian cells. It is used for the manufacturing of monoclonal antibodies, virus vaccines, gene therapy products and many other biological drug products approved by regulatory bodies worldwide, including FDA and EMA.
High-purity quaternary ammonium compounds (Quats)
An innovative synthesis process makes Novo Nordisk Pharmatech a leading supplier of crystalline Quats for a wide range of applications. High levels of purity make them particularly suited for pharmaceutical applications, such as vaccine production. They act either as preservatives or active ingredients in many ophthalmic, nasal, oral and topical drugs and in a variety of solutions, ointments and creams. Their purity and characteristics are also ideal for a range of personal care products.
