Chemical Excipients

Spectrum Chemical offers one of the largest selections of chemical excipients in the pharmaceutical industry. Pharmaceutical excipients are substances other than the pharmacologically active drug or prodrug which are included in the manufacturing process or are contained in a finished pharmaceutical product dosage form. These inert materials provide functions such as enhancing solubility; concealing disagreeable tastes; extending shelf-life; facilitating drug absorption; and more. These useful excipients can also be used in the manufacturing of active substances by adding non-stick properties and other favorable characteristics.

Spectrum specializes in providing over 250 of the top chemical excipients. All Spectrum Chemical excipients are manufactured, packaged and stored under current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) per 21CFR part 211 in FDA registered and inspected facilities. Spectrum’s pledge to you is our products will be delivered to you with the quality and delivery you can count on every time.
