High quality Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient for sale

Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) refers to the raw material medicine used for the production of various preparations, and is the effective ingredient in the preparation. API is prepared by chemical synthesis, plant extraction or biotechnology. APIs are used as pharmaceutical powders, crystals, extracts, etc. But the patient can not take active pharmaceutical ingredient directly. Such as Prednisolone, Prednisone, Prednisone Acetate, Prednisolone Acetate, Prednisolone Sodium Phosphate, Betamethasone, Hydrocortisone, Hydrocortisone Acetate, Dexamethasone, beta-Carotene, Lopromide, Bismuth aluminate, Sulfadoxine, Bismuth aluminate hydrate, Diclofenac sodium, Diclofenac potassium and Vitamin D2, etc.

Introduction of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient


Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient referred to as API. Any mixture of substances or substance intended for use in the manufacture of drugs. When used in pharmaceuticals, API is an active ingredient in pharmaceuticals. The substances have pharmacological activity or other direct effects in the diagnosis, treatment, remission, treatment or prevention of diseases, or can affect the function or structure of the body.

Effective ingredients of the medicine. Only when the API is processed into a pharmaceutical preparation can it become a medicine for clinical use.

Types of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient

According to its source, API can be divided into two categories: chemical synthetic drug and natural chemical drug.

Chemical synthetic drug can also be divided into inorganic synthetic drug and organic synthetic drug. Inorganic synthetic drugs are inorganic compounds (very few elements), such as bismuth aluminate for the treatment of gastric and duodenal ulcer. Organic synthetic drugs are mainly made from basic organic chemical raw materials through a series of organic chemical reactions.

Natural chemical drugs can be divided into two categories according to their sources: biochemical and phytochemical. Antibiotics are generally made by microbial fermentation and belong to the category of biochemistry. In recent years, a variety of semi synthetic antibiotics are synthesized by combining biosynthesis with chemical synthesis. Among the APIs, organic synthetic drugs account for the largest proportion of variety, output and output value, and are the main pillar of the chemical pharmaceutical industry. The quality of API determines the quality of the preparation. Therefore, its quality standards are strict. All countries in the world have formulated strict national pharmacopoeia standards and quality control methods for their widely used APIs.

Pharmaceutic preparation

The specific active pharmaceutical ingredients are processed as pharmaceutical preparations. The name of the API is mainly relative to the preparation. Active pharmaceutical ingredients are mainly processed by chemical processing, and are raw materials for the production of finished drug products.

Development prospect of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) in China

Many of China’s active pharmaceutical ingredients have a high market share in the international market, and their scale advantages are obvious, which can not be replaced by other countries in a short term. Chinese enterprises avoid homogeneous competition, develop special active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), constantly improve the quality of their export products, and expand the export space of Chinese APIs.
