Activated PEG for

We manufacture high-purity methoxy-polyethylene glycols (mPEGs) with molecular weights from 2kDa to 80kDa, producing high-purity activated PEG derivatives of methoxy PEG amines, maleimides and carboxylic acids. Various alterations of the terminal PEG chemistry permit drug modification as per customers’ expectations and needs. Furthermore, use of PEGylated phospholipids composed of our high-purity phospholipids and PEGs prolongs the plasma circulating half-life of liposome drugs. Recently, we have developed high purity single molecule PEGs especially for Antibody Drug Conjugates (ADCs) to increase hydrophilicity and payload of drugs.

Phospholipids and Lipids for
Liposomal Formulations

In early 1990’s, we commenced supply of GMP-grade phospholipids to every corner of the world. Our products have been used in commercialized liposomal drugs for anti-fungal and oncology use, which led to our outstanding reputation in this field. For the benefit of our customers, we have also developed high-purity cationic lipids, diacylglycerol-PEGs and novel SS-cleavable/pH-responsive lipids for effective Lipid Nanoparticle (LNP) delivery of gene, nucleic acids and small molecule.


Ultrapure Polysorbate 80

Our polysorbate, Polysorbate 80 (HX2)™, is used as ultrapure surfactants, and we are proud that it is well-known around the world to have the highest quality. Polysorbate 80 (HX2)™ has fewer impurities compared to conventional grade products.
Polysorbate 80 (HX2)™ features low impurities and low susceptibility to oxidation thereby contain negligible amounts of peroxides and aldehydes, which are well-known to induce degradation of drug formulations.


Novel Excipients for
Pharmaceutical Development

Using high-purity oleic acid, we produce the non-ionic surfactant (NOFABLE™ Series) and its derivatives. Since impurities derived from oxidation are eliminated in our process for the product, formulations employing NOFABLE™ surfactant show lower degradation rates of drug substances and improved drug product stability.
We also provide a cell-modifying agent that acts without exerting any injurious effects on the cells.Employment of the BAM concept contributes to both modification of the cells or tissue surfaces with physiologicaly active substances, such as proteins or drugs, and live cell immobilization of cells or tissues on the surfaces of various kinds of materials without any damage to the target cells and tissues.
