Chr. Hansen at SupplySide East

Science integrates ingredient systems and quality

At the upcoming SupplySide East International Tradeshow and Conference to be held in Baltimore, Maryland on May 4 - 6, 2005, Chr. Hansen will showcase their clinically documented probiotics, color coating systems, and excipients, as well as their manufacturing expertise. The international pharmaceutical and nutritional ingredients supplier places a strong focus on providing customers with integrated ingredient systems that provide total solutions.

More than 50 published clinical studies have been conducted on Chr. Hansen's BB-12™ Bifidobacterium, LA-5™ Lactobacillus acidophilus and L. casei 431™. In studies evaluating these specific strains, researchers report enhanced intestinal well-being and positive effects on diarrhea, antibiotic-associated diarrhea, traveler's diarrhea and constipation, as well as enhanced immunity and positive effect on the skin disorder, atopic dermatitis. Proprietary encapsulation and tableting technology allows the probiotic bacteria to survive passage through the stomach and reach the small intestine. The company manufactures its probiotics using GMP and pharmaceutical standards.

Chr. Hansen specializes in customized formulations of clear and colored coating systems in dry and liquid (dispersed) form for solid dosage products. Based on over 100 years of experience in natural colors, Chr. Hansen has thorough knowledge of the application of synthetic and natural colors in film coatings. The company can create or match any color from a Pantone, paint, or fabric swatch. To help customers select the desired shade, Chr. Hansen has an extensive library of color-coated tablets, and uses advanced spectrophotometric methods to guide development and set manufacturing specifications. The company also provides functional coating systems that have enteric, moisture barrier, and sustained release properties.

Chr. Hansen's excipient product line includes directly compressible minerals and sugars, multi-grades of Foremost™ Lactose, and sugar spheres for timed-release applications. Foremost Lactose meets all the specifications for monohydrate lactose outlined in the current NF, Ph.Eur., and JP. Chr. Hansen Sugar Spheres NF features highly consistent sphere size for precise application of the drug active.

Chr. Hansen's pilot and manufacturing plants are state-of-the art. Laboratories are equipped with models of all major film coating equipment, larger conventional pans, and perforated pans to ensure proper quality control standards, manufacturing methods, and reproducibility. The manufacturing facility is GMP for Bulk Pharmaceutical Excipients per USP chapter 1078.
