BIBZinC-20mg Salient Features
BIBCOL is the only CPSU having exclusive GMP certified manufacturing facility for Zinc Sulphate Dispersible Tablets, unlike other units which outsource the production , where manufacturing as per GMP norms is not guaranteed .
Bitter Taste Masking (Patented technology acquired through WHO from M/s Nutriset France ) :
BIBCOL is the only CPSU which has the necessary technology for total bitter taste masking of Zinc Sulphate Dispersible Tablets with Vanilla Flavour. Bitter taste masking in BIBZinc*20 mg is as per EMEA(European Medical Evaluation Agency ) guidelines under which WHO is procuring the same product world wide for Diarrhoea Management. It is pointed out that without proper bitter taste masking, the Zinc Sulphate Tablets can be vomit inducing, specially in infants and children. BIBZinc*20 mg therefore qualifies as an international quality product.
High Dispersibility & Homogeneous Dissolution :
BIBZinc*20 mg has got excellent homogeneous dissolution/ dispersion (within 30 sec) thereby providing adequate supplementation of elemental Zinc in target groups. It is pointed out that heterogeneous solution and late dispersibility of the Zinc Sulphate Tablets would make the absorption and availability lesser and can also be vomit inducing, hence would be unable to completely address the incidences of diarrhoea.
Clinical Trials :
BIBZinc*20 mg is the only product which has been tested clinically on infants as well as children, through multicentric clinical trials conducted in India as well as abroad in association with WHO.
Scored Tablets :
BIBZinc*20 mg tablets being scored one is going to give flexibility by providing 10 mg dose also.
Comparative rate with Comparable product for BIBZinc 20 mg :
Comparable Product(s) are being manufactured which are commercially available, at Rs. 3.16 and Rs. 3.24 per Tablet, respectively, (more than double the rate of BIBZinc*20 mg).
