Hospitals

With a focus on patient, pharmacist, and prescriber, Fagron offers unique hospital solutions that add significant value in the treatment of patients with special needs.

 

SyrSpend® SF

Fagron’s SyrSpend® SF suspending vehicles offer the hospital pharmacist a convenient and time-saving solution for preparing safe and stable customised medication. The suspending vehicles are dye-free, sorbitol- and sugar-free, and alcohol-free, providing acceptability for a wide range of patients. The unique starch-based suspending vehicle uses patented Active Suspending Technology to assist in keeping the active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) in suspension for longer, allowing for more accurate and consistent dosing for the duration of treatment.

The challenge in compounding oral liquids is that often limited information is available on the stability of the preparation [1-3]. To overcome this challenge, Fagron has started to study the stability of more than 100 commonly used active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) in SyrSpend® SF and publishes the results in peer-reviewed scientific journals. An overview of all published stability studies can be found here.

 

Raw materials

Fagron offers a wide range of high-quality APIs of pharmaceutical grade (USP/NF/BP/EP), including Monsel's Solution, omeprazole USP powder, DMSO and phenol liquid USP.

Fagron's pharmaceutical raw materials are subjected to a rigorous process of quality tests. The results of these tests and the extensive range of documents Fagron demands from the producers, are reviewed by a qualified person before release. A Certificate of Analysis (CoA) is available for all raw materials and can be found on our website. A complete overview of our offering can be found here
