Pharmaceutical Purification

The pharmaceutical industry relies on NORIT® activated carbons to purify numerous pharmaceutical products. Our highly controlled manufacturing processes bring activated carbons with purity, consistency, traceability, and auditability.

NORIT activated carbons purify:

  • API’s (antibiotics, painkillers, steroids, ...)
  • Vitamins
  • Intermediates
  • Diagnostic agents
  • Enzymes

And they remove these impurities:

  • Synthesis byproducts
  • Discolorations and pigments
  • Cell residues, oligopeptides, proteins
  • Odor compounds
  • Impurities from feedstocks
  • Metal-containing residues from catalysts

To optimize purification performance and product recovery, you can choose from a range of NORIT product grades offering a variety of adsorptive properties and pore structures.

Fully respecting your need for confidentiality, we’ve developed a method by which you can choose easily the optimal activated carbon grade for your specific process. This method includes a sample kit of several grades, a 5-step manual for your R&D to determine best options, and best practices for lab-scale operations. Of course, we’re also happy to work with you and provide dedicated advice (under NDA if you wish).
