Jacobi Carbons AB

Activated carbons solutions for medicinal and pharmaceutical industry - Chemical & Pharmaceuticals - Pharmaceutical

Modern medical treatments increasingly utilise drug therapy in addition to, or in place of, invasive measures. The growth of new pharmaceutical preparations is today at an unprecedented level. At the same time, increasing regulatory scrutiny over pharmaceutical formulations adds to the challenge for pharmaceutical companies. Jacobi has extensive knowledge of the regulatory and economic challenges faced by pharmaceutical manufacturers, and deep insight into their complex markets. Regardless of the industry sector we have the right activated carbon.

Due to their adsorptive and purification characteristics activated carbons are incorporated into various medicinal products to lower cholesterol levels and treat cholestasis during pregnancy. They also work as an anti-flatulent prior to abdominal radiography procedures. During blood dialysis toxins are absorbed and potentially life-threatening contaminations are prevented. Over the counter stomach remedies also incorporate activated carbons in the treatment of diarrhoea, indigestion and flatulence.

In veterinary medicine activated carbon is used as a feed additive. It adsorbs undesirable or potentially harmful substances from the animal’s gastrointestinal tract, making it an effective treatment for poisoning and diarrhoea.

Activated carbons are used to remove unwanted by-products from pharmaceuticals without modifying any chemicals. Their key factor is purity and performance. Different grades perform different functions, from bulk colour removal of feeds to the separation of pre-cursors of degradation products. They are also superior adsorbents in pharmaceutical processing applications where highly effective filtration systems are required. Client test methods are often adapted in the formulation of Jacobi’s products to adjust our manufacturing processes to meet demands.
