About Pharmacosmos

Headquartered in Denmark, Pharmacosmos is a family-owned, international healthcare company with more than 50 years of innovation and leadership in iron- and carbohydrate-based treatments and solutions for human and animal use.

A research-based company, its ongoing R&D programme focuses on improving the lives of patients with iron deficiency with or without anaemia. More than 1 billion people live with iron deficiency anaemia and it is the leading cause of death for an estimated 180,000 people every year. This makes it one of the largest global health challenges of our time.

Pharmacosmos has subsidiaries in US, China, UK, Ireland, Germany, Sweden and Norway and its products are marketed in more than 80 countries around the world. Its manufacturing facilities are approved, among others, by the Danish Medicines Agency and the US FDA.

Our Carbohydrate Business Area

Pharmacosmos is the world leader in pharmaceutical quality carbohydrates, including a full range of dextran products. Our offerings include products that meet the US, European and Japanese pharmacopoeias.

Pharmacosmos further offers Dextran Ultra (very narrow distributions), Technical Quality Dextrans, Dextran Standards and GPC Standards. Pharmacosmos’ dextran products are manufactured for pharmaceutical and technical applications. Through advanced development, production technique and the highest standard of laboratory control combined with good and reliable service to the customers, Pharmacosmos has established a position as the leading manufacturer of pharmaceutical quality dextran products. Pharmacosmos recently completed a new synthesis facility enabling the company to manufacture a range of carbohydrate derivatives, with applications ranging from vaccines adjuvants to chromatographic applications.

Our Cryopreservation Business

The newest focus of Pharmacosmos’ carbohydrate business area is the application of carbohydrates in cryopreservation of cells and tissues. Cell therapies are anticipated to be the medical break-through of the century, but many supporting technologies must be improved in order for the field to realize its potential. The established standards for cryopreservation of cells are based on Dimethyl Sulfoxide (DMSO), which has a number of drawbacks in relation to side effects and handling. As a consequence, there is a growing demand from researchers and clinicians to eliminate or dramatically reduce the use of DMSO. Pharmacosmos has developed promising carbohydrate-based alternatives to DMSO with improved safety and at least equivalent efficacy. Pharmacosmos PentaHibe® (containing Pentaisomaltose®) is a safe and effective alternative to dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) for cryopreservation of cells. The objective is now to leverage Pharmacosmos’ existing cGMP production platform and to build supporting evidence and support for a new paradigm in cryopreservation. To learn more, visit
