Extraction of Pharmaceutical Ingredients
Adsorbents are widely used for pharmaceutical production and other healthcare applications.
Antibiotics, peptides, proteins and other compounds can be efficiently removed through the use of polymeric adsorbents. In many instances, pore structure of the resin can be used to maximize the removal of smaller molecules while excluding smaller molecules. Because adsorbent resins are hemocompatible, they are often used to separate compounds from blood and other biologic fluids such as cytokines and β2-microglobulin, while keeping serum proteins intact.
Adsorbent resins for extraction and other pharmaceutical processes include:
