G-blocks form stiff chain elements, and two G-blocks of more than 6 residues each form stable cross-linked junctions with divalent cations e.

There is a USP monograph on alginic acid, and the USP is evaluating monographs on chitosan, chitosan alfinate and chitosan glutamate. Our products include ultrapure grades of sodium alginate and sodium hyaluronates that fulfill functional and regulatory requirements.

Viscosity measurements are often used as a simple measurable parameter of changes in the molar mass of a polymer, and thereby can be used as a stability indicating parameter. Poly mannuronic acid — low molecular weight, intrinsic viscosity 6. The main difference between internal and diffusion setting is the gelling kinetics. For most applications of alginates, the molar mass molecular weight is an important parameter determining the functionality of the alginate for that specific application.

During storage, the lid of the container should be kept closed. Pharmacokinetics of poly-M Report number: Orders received later than Tuesday December 4th will be processed in January We use cookies to ensure that we give you the best experience on our website.

FMC BioPolymer – Alginate, chitosan and hyaluronan in drug delivery

There are no mammalian enzymes that are active towards alginates, however, even in mammals, one must expect random depolymerization mechanisms like the ones described above to occur. Sodium hyaluronate, or hyaluronan, is a linear polymer composed of N-acetyl-glucosamine and glucuronic acid. The relative amount of each biopolymsr type varies with the origin of the alginate.


Store NovaMatrix Manufacturing of industrial alginates since Determination of primary structure is today possible by NMR techniques by analyzing the spectrum using appropriate statistical considerations [8, 9].

Sterile Purchase the product. Advantages of the nasal route of administration include: The monomers can appear in homopolymeric blocks of consecutive G-residues G-blocksconsecutive M-residues M-blocksalternating M and G-residues MG-blocks or randomly organized blocks [].

A business unit of FMC Health and Nutrition, produces and supplies well-characterized and documented ultrapure bio-compatible and bio-absorbable biopolymers for use in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and biomedical industries, including applications such as drug biopoymer, tissue engineering, cell encapsulation, and medical devices.

We use cookies to ensure that we give you the best experience on our website. Hyaluronan has found uses in a variety fkc products in the pharmaceutical and biomedical field.

FMC Corporation

Sodium Hyaluronate is an abundant glycosaminoglycan found in the extracellular matrix of skin, joints, eyes and most organs and tissues of all higher animals. Poly mannuronic acid 14 C-labelled Concentration: These may include, but not be limited to applications such as drug delivery, fmcc engineering, cell encapsulation, and medical devices. Alginate is one of the most versatile biopolymers. This kind of biofactory has been implanted into animals and diabetic patients, and has been seen to function for at least one year.


This unique property is particularly useful in applications involving fragile materials like cells or tissue with low tolerance for higher temperatures. Gelation In contrast to most other polysaccharide gels, alginate gels can develop and set at constant temperature.

The monomers can appear in homopolymeric blocks of consecutive G-residues G-blocksconsecutive M-residues Giopolymeralternating M and G-residues MG-blocks or randomly organized blocks. Apparent viscosity, intrinsic viscosity, and molar mass, which are all indicative measurements of depolymerization, have been observed to change significantly upon time under certain storage conditions.

Little or no effect on cell survival and colony-forming ability.

Ultrapure alginate

Albinate will gel instantaneously on contact with calcium or other divalent cations except magnesiumand the resulting gel structure will be dependent upon the structure and sequence of the alginate.

If you continue to use this site we alginatr assume that you are happy with it. Single dose toxicity study by the intravenous route Report number: At low pH, protonized alginates will form acidic gels. Depolymerization of alginates will occur in solution and in the solid state due to a variety of mechanisms. The porosity of the alginate gel is such that oxygen and nutrients can enter while cell products such as proteins – up to certain molecular weights – can diffuse out of the gel.

Chitosan is a linear biopolymer that consists of glucosamine and N-acetyl-glucosamine. Previous tab Next tab.
