Pfanstiehl has announced the launch of a new high purity, low endotoxin, and low metal Mannitol (USP, EP, JP, ChP), manufactured in the US under strict cGMP, ICH Q7 compliant conditions.

Mannitol is a tried and true platform excipient used in a wide range of therapeutic formulations. Mannitol has demonstrated its utility as a stand-alone lyo-protectant or bulking agent, as well as in combination with other high purity excipients like Trehalose and Sucrose to stabilize a variety of systems including mAbs, ADCs, vaccines, and small molecules.

The product specification is also compliant with Chinese Pharmacopeia.

Pfanstiehl’s market leading specifications for the new Mannitol help to provide product quality and consistency for better support with biopharmaceutical processing requirements.

Commercial material and samples from Pfanstiehl’s cGMP manufactured batches of Mannitol are available now for customer qualification and production, along with a Product Profile.
