Pharmaceutical grade quaternary ammonium compounds (Quats)


An innovative synthesis process makes Novo Nordisk Pharmatech a leading supplier of crystalline Quarternary Ammonium Compounds (Quats) for a wide range of applications. High levels of purity for products such as Benzalkonium Chloride, Cetrimide, Cetrimonium Bromide (CTAB) and a range of others make them particularly suited for pharmaceutical applications. 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. They can also be used as lysing or precipitating agents in vaccine production. For the cosmetic industry, our Quats’ purity and characteristics provide ideal conditioning, emulsifying and preserving effects in hair and cream products.
