Chitosan Glutamate

Properties of Chitosan Glutamate

  • water soluble
  • antimicrobial
  • antifungal
  • mucoadhesive

Applications of Chitosan Glutamate

  • hydrogels
  • drug transport and release
  • Enhancement of drug uptake
  • tissue engineering
  • Enhancement of adhesion properties e.g. to mucous membranes

At HMC we offer chitosan glutamate in various specifications with different degrees of deacetylation, viscosities and molecular weights. High molecular weight chitosan glutamate is also available. The minimum order quantity for product 44006 is 20g. For products 54041, 54042 and 54043 the minimum order quantity is 10g.

The following table gives you an overview of our different Chitosan Glutamate specifications:

Of course, we also offer our chitosan glutamate specifications in Chitoceuticals® GMP compliant quality. Our GMP-compliant products are manufactured in our clean rooms according to EU GMP guidelines. As a result, they have a very low endotoxin limit and a very low microbial load.

The minimum order quantity is 10g. Our GMP-compliant products are currently not yet available in our store, but can be ordered by email. We will be pleased to make you an offer, please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
