Product - Information

Pharma Action produces biological extracts such as Heparin and Heparinoids at their MoH GMP certified API and Crude Heparin production facilities.


Heparin is a sulphated glycosaminoglycan, a naturally occurring anti-coagulant that delays the clotting of freshly shed blood, principally used in the treatment and prevention of thrombo-embolic disorders. It can also be used to coat the inner surfaces of experimental and medical equipment e.g. test tubes and renal dialysis machines.

Pharma Action offers different Heparins and Heparin salts within their Heparin portfolio.
