Sujata Nutri Pharma is one of the leading manufacturers and exporters of Dextrose CAS no. 50-99-7.
Dextrose belongs to the class of sugars, and is a preferred source of carbohydrate in parenteral nutrition regimens. It is widely used in solutions to adjust tonicity, as a sweetening agent, wet granulation diluent/binder, direct-compression tablet diluent/binder, etc. It is considered only for short term clinical use, since it is deficient in electrolytes.
Dextrose has been used as a standard in the determination of additives like glucose in beverages using high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). It may also be used as a pharmaceutical reference standard for the quantification of the analyte in pharmaceutical formulations using spectrophotometric technique.
