Catalent Australia and Medipharm Partner to Supply Malaysian Market with Three New Health Care Products
Braeside, Australia, March 20, 2013 – Catalent Pharma Solutions today announced that it will apply its drug delivery technology for the launch of three new products for Malaysian natural healthcare supplier, Medipharm Industries. Catalent has worked together with Medipharm to quickly develop superior new formulations for Medipharm’s recently launched Eurobio Vibrex Zinc-Plus, Bio-Vizmax and Bio-SMEDDS Q10 products for the Malaysian market and will now act as sole supply partner.
Eurobio Vibrex Zinc-Plus is an advanced formula containing zinc and other essential nutrients designed to provide complete support for skin, hair and nail health, men’s health, immunity and vitality. Bio-Vizmax provides eye nutrition and is formulated with clinically tested Lutein and Zeaxanthin for eye/vision health, while Bio-SMEDDS CoQ10 is being marketed to general practitioners and cardiologists in 50mg capsules for heart health and organ function. Catalent manufactures the products at its Braeside facility, near Melbourne, Australia. All products are manufactured to the highest cGMP and cGLP pharmaceutical standards.
“Catalent’s expertise in optimized formulation for the effective delivery of our products has enabled us to get these three new offerings to market quickly and efficiently,” commented Medipharm Managing Director, CM Loh. “This was particularly useful in the case of Bio-SMEDDS Q10, where the enhanced bioavailability that Catalent was able to bring gives us a significant differentiating advantage over other CoQ10 formulations on the market.”
