World first chitosan molecular weight standards!

At EUCHIS 2023, HMC is launching chitosan standards for the first time. ,,We are proud to finally offer a reliable standard for molecular weight analysis'', says Katja Richter, Managing Director of Heppe Medical Chitosan. This means that researchers and customers no longer need to compare chitosans with other substances such as pullulan or PEG/PEO for molecular weight analysis. Now reliable chitosans can be used. No approximations. No thinking about whether they are the right, reliable results. Reliable chitosans for excellent research and outstanding pharmaceutical products.
