Sodium hyaluronate, or hyaluronan, is a linear polymer composed of N-acetyl-glucosamine and glucuronic acid. Jump to page content Accessibility. At low pH, protonized alginates will form acidic gels.

These may include, but not be limited to applications such as drug delivery, tissue engineering, cell encapsulation, and medical albinate. Effect of sodium alginate on cell survival of V and 3T3 cells cultured in vitro Single dose toxicity study by the intraperitoneal route Single dose toxicity study by the intravenous route Pharmacokinetics of poly-M Report number: For sodium alginates, the parameters monitored are appearance of powder, dry matter content, intrinsic viscosity, apparent viscosity, pH, molar mass, chemical composition, ash content, endotoxins, and microbial algonate.

On the other hand, Holme et al. Increased temperature will increase the rate of depolymerization for all mechanisms mentioned above Holme et al. Hyaluronan has found uses in a variety of products in the pharmaceutical and biomedical field.

The best known technology is immobilization of living cells in alginate gels. Advantages of the nasal route of administration include: Formation of gels with controlled degradability in physiological conditions Bioadhesiveness Specific cellular interactions that can be used to target drugs to specific cell types C haracterisation with respect to physical, chemical and biological properties is important, and knowledge of biopolymer properties will affect their successful use in drug delivery applications.


In these gels, it is mostly the homopolymeric blocks that form the junctions, where the stability of the gel is determined by the relative content of G-blocks [7]. Some of the unique properties that these biopolymers can bring to the drug delivery field are: There is a USP monograph on alginic acid, and the USP is evaluating monographs on chitosan, chitosan chloride and chitosan glutamate. Store NovaMatrix Manufacturing of industrial alginates since This is due to the lower binding strength between the polymer chains and biopolyymer the higher flexibilities of the molecules.

Hyaluronan Sodium hyaluronate, or hyaluronan, is a linear polymer composed of N-acetyl-glucosamine and glucuronic acid. Chitosan Chitosan is a linear biopolymer that consists of glucosamine and N-acetyl-glucosamine.

Gels, pastes, fibers and solid structures of alginate are being evaluated for use in numerous tissue-engineering applications. No abnormal clinical signs, normal weight increase. During storage, the lid of the container should be kept closed.

Gels made of M-rich alginate are biopolymeer and more fragile, and may also have a lower porosity.


For most applications of alginates, the molar mass molecular weight biopolyymer an important parameter determining the functionality of the alginate for that specific application. We have updated our privacy policy.


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.

The highest stability was observed in a pH interval of 5 to 8. Depolymerization of alginates will occur in solution and in the solid state due to a variety of mechanisms. Alginate Alginate is fm straight-chain polysaccharide composed of two monomers, mannuronic acid and its C-5 epimer guluronic acid.

In the latest update it explains what cookies are and how we use them on our site. The biopolymers alginate, chitosan and hyaluronan are well known and have been used in many pharmaceutical formulations for many years.

FMC BioPolymer buys Norwegian alginates

We will resume order processing and shipping January 3rd Today, this technology is being fully explored in novel drug and gene delivery concepts.
