Best-quality insulin

Novo Nordisk Pharmatech aims to be the best 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.

Novo Nordisk Pharmatech is a reliable partner in helping customers find the right quality ingredients for their projects, even tailoring ingredients to match specific application needs. The company lives up to the highest-quality standards, providing pure, efficacious and safe products. Its entire supply chain, manufacturing processes and quality control take place in Denmark.

High-purity 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 for products such as benzalkonium chloride, cetrimide, cetrimonium bromide (CTAB) and others make them particularly suited for pharmaceutical applications such as vaccine production. They act as preservatives or active ingredients in many ophthalmic, nasal, oral and topical drugs, and in a variety of solutions, ointments and creams. Because Novo Nordisk Pharmatech's closely controlled production process keeps batch variation to a minimum, its quats are also in demand by the diagnostic reagent sector.

Novo Nordisk Pharmatech experts can advise customers about the right product for their formulation or develop a custom-designed product to meet specific needs. The company adheres to the latest European guidelines on good distribution practice and all quats are manufactured in accordance with the cGMP Guide ICH Q7 for active pharmaceutical ingredients, the highest available standard. Quality analyses are made according to multicompendial pharmacopoeias (BP, PhEur, USP/NF and JP) and are part of the regulatory documentation ensuring global compliance.

Novo Nordisk is a member of the UN Global Compact and World Business Council for Sustainable Development. As a fully owned subsidiary, Novo Nordisk Pharmatech follows the same general policies for sustainability, business ethics and code of conduct.
