ABITEC develops and manufactures lipid-based excipients to enhance the bioavailability of poorly water-soluble and poorly permeable Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) for the pharmaceutical industry. ABITEC's CAPMUL® mono- and diglycerides are monograph compliant lipid excipients for drug delivery applications and are manufactured in ISO certified facilities in accordance with strict cGMP and applicable IPEC guidelines.
Making a positive contribution to the nutritional health market is important to us. ABITEC manufactures functional lipids, such as our CAPTEX® medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) from high quality resources while striving to meet sustainability initiatives. ABITEC's lipids function as bioavailability enhancers, carriers, solubilizers, emulsifiers, energy sources, structured lipids, nutritional powders, and tablet lubricants for the functional food, supplement, and nutrition markets.
ABITEC Corporation is a global leader in the development and manufacture of specialty lipids, esters, alkoxylates, amides and sulfur based quaternary compounds. We pride ourselves on our ability to help new and existing customers tackle difficult product development challenges, especially if the objective is to formulate a product that is less toxic and more environmentally friendly.
Featured Applications & Benefits
The solubility issues with active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) can lead to reduced bioavailability, as both dissolution and permeation of the active are required absorption. ABITEC's functional lipids can be employed to generate oil in water emulsions which solubilize the active resulting in increased bioavailability.
It is estimated that an aged brain uses 10-15% less glucose than a non-aged brain. This number increases to 25% in those with Alzheimer’s disease [1-4]. Studies have demonstrated that consumption of MCTs (such as CAPTEX®) can provide the ketones that an aging brain may use as alternate energy.
Featuring, STEROTEX® NF lubricating dry binder for direct compression tableting. The oleaginous nature of Sterotex NF provides boundary lubrication to direct-compression tableting blends reducing ejection force.
The quick metabolism of CAPTEX® MCTs into ketones provides an energy source for your body. Studies have shown that MCT oil supplementation may increase satiety and decrease food consumption during the following meal .
