Sodium Hyaluronate is a sodium salt of hyaluronic acid. It is extracted from cocks’ combs or obtained by Streptococcus sp by fermentation. It is a polysaccharide made up of repeating units of Glucuronic acids and N-Acetyl glucosamine. The molecular weight of Sodium Hyaluronate varies from 7000 Da – 13,000,000 Da with high viscosity.
Sodium Hyaluronate is GMP manufactured in a certified facility with animal component free certified raw materials.
Sodium Hyaluronate has high viscoelastic in nature with its biocompatibility and non-immunogenicity has led to its use in ophthalmic, nasal, pulmonary, intra-articular and dermal routes. Sodium Hyaluronate injection is used to treat knee pain in patients with osteoarthritis. It is also used as an aid in ophthalmic surgery acting as aqueous and vitreous humour.
