ABITEC is a global leader in the development and manufacture of highlyfunctional lipids and surfactants for the pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, and specialty chemical markets. Our world-class technical, scientific, regulatory, and manufacturing expertise allow us to deliver the highest degree of reproducibility and quality across the diverse applications in which lipids are employed. Our science-driven approach, and academic partnerships, allow us to supply exceptional products for a wide range of markets and applications.
ABITEC was founded in the 1960’s as a chemical manufacturer producing specialty and fine chemicals. In 1994, ABITEC was purchased by Associated British Foods (ABF) and became part of the ABF Ingredients group, a series of companies focused on the manufacture of specialized ingredients for various industries, including foods, pharmaceuticals, and nutraceuticals. Since ABITEC’s founding, we continue to improve our processes, expand our product offerings, and optimize our manufacturing to world-class levels.
ABITEC manufactures a multitude of functional lipids with specific applications capabilities to the pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, and specialty chemicals industries. ABITEC provides solutions in solubilization, emulsification, and lubrication globally through both direct and distributor supported channels.
ABITEC has an expansive portfolio of compendial highly-functional lipids for the Pharmaceutical industry, including Captex® medium-chain tri-glycerides, Capmul® mono- and di-glycerides, Acconon® non-ionic surfactants, and Sterotex® hydrogenated vegetable oils. Captex, Capmul, and Acconon excipients can be used alone or in conjunction, to develop lipid-based formulations that can overcome solubility and permeability issues with BCS Class II-IV active ingredients, in order to improve bioavailability. Additionally, Capmul can be employed to provide for emulsification and transdermal penetration in topical formulations. Sterotex is employed in tablet dry-binding, tablet lubrication, multiparticulate coating, and matrix tablet sustained release. ABITEC’s new INJECTA™ line of functional lipids provides the ideal building blocks for injectable formulations. ABITEC’s pharmaceutical grade lipids conform to compendia standards and are manufactured in accordance with strict c-GMP in ISO-certified facilities.
