VITROBIO PHARMAPHARMACEUTICAL RESEARCH INSTITUTE
Vitrobio is a pharmaceutical company based in Issoire, France and specialized in research and development of medical devices, food supplements and herbal medicines for more than 20 years now.
Our research is based on ancestral Indian and Chinese medicines. We are trying to scientifically understand how a plant, a spice or an herb can have virtues in certain pathologies. We are developing in vitro models to test the active ingredients of plants in certain diseases, then to improve the efficiency by combining active ingredients from different plants.
Our scientific research in many fields has been rewarded with numerous publications, such as the « Prince Louis de Polignac » prize from the Academy of Sciences and the European PAEXA prize as the best in vitro research center.
Today we develop our own products with the aim of providing maximum quality of the plants used. They are distributed worldwide, in more than 30 countries and more than 90 products are currently in the market.
Covispray® is a filmogen liquid containing glycerol, two jellifying agents, and an association of plant polymers, all capable to bind with glycerol molecules to render it filmogen, flexible, and resistant to mechanical pressures exerted by the liquid flow. When applied in the nasal cavity, the liquid forms a transparent and slightly osmotic film, like a liquid barrier on the nasal surface. The thickening / jellifying agents in the film swells when they meet water and renders the film absorbent.
