Chitin, Chitosan or Chitosan derivatives are integral part of your scientific work?

Research results are very sensitive to property changes of the used materials. Therefore narrow specification limits are very important to obtain reproducible results.

different product lines attuned to diverse exploratory foci.

  • Chitoceuticals®: Pharmaceutical research & development and production
    •     Standard: produced with medical grade chemicals and furnished with relevant analyses
    •     GMP compliant: produced & documented in the clean room according to GMP guidelines
