What Is Tacrolimus?

Tacrolimus Chemical Structure
Chemical Structure

Cas number: 104987-11-3

Molecular formula: C44H69NO12

Molecular weight: 804 g/mol

Existing as an anhydrous or monohydrate form, tacrolimus is a white crystalline powder.

It is soluble in many solvents such as ethanol, methanol, acetone, and chloroform but insoluble in water.

Tacrolimus is mainly used to reduce the activity of the patient’s immune system and the risk of organ rejection after an organ transplant. It is one of the most effective immunosuppressants along with Cyclosporin A.

Pharmaceutical manufacturers have made it into many dosage forms.

You can even get its ointments and creams from a compounding pharmacy.

Its common dosage forms include capsules, injections, eye ointments, solutions, creams, lotions, etc. If you are the dosage manufacturer of those dosages above, contact us now for a free quote.

We have been supplying it to many brand manufacturers over the past 3 years, our quality has been very consistent and appraised by current customers.

Tacrolimus vs Cyclosporine

Though tacrolimus is different from cyclosporine in several aspects, such as potency, safety, dosage forms, acting mechanism, and so on, the biggest difference to me, as a chemical importer and exporter, is their prices.

If you are a regular buyer for it, you know it is normally sold by the GRAM, as regular orders are in 2~300 grams, unless heavy buyers are buying it by kilos each order. 

According to one study, it was able to significantly lower the rate of acute rejection compared with cyclosporine-based immunosuppression (30.7% vs 46.4%)

We have compared the differences between tacrolimus and cyclosporine on our cyclosporine page, please click to check.

What is The HS Code Of Tacrolimus?

In Chinese Customs, its pure powder is classified as Other heterocyclic compounds with HS Code as 2934999090.

If you are importing its finished formulations from China such as capsules, ointments, the corresponding HS code is 30049099.

Tacrolimus Cost Trend Since 2010

As you can see from the above price trends, its cost has dropped from its highest 100usd per gram since 2010 to less than 80usd per gram in 2020.

The price drop is mainly caused by manufacturing-capacity surplus and more foreign competition.

But a 20% drop within 10 years is acceptable for an old API.

You can also check its export price from India below for your ref.

As you can see, its export price from Europe to India is around 73~85usd per gram, which is similar to the cost of the GMP source.

With those lower prices of 55usd~61 per gram, you can only get materials from non-GMP sources, at least it is the case in China.

What To Ask Before You Order Tacrolimus?

#1. Whether your supplier has the technical package for your MOH registration.

Ask your supplier if they have documents first, such as Good Manufacturing Practice, Drug Master Files, Drug Manufacturing License, FDA, CEP, etc. Without those docs and proper registration papers, you will have trouble in your customs for your import.

#2. Whether your supplier can arrange safe shipping by air.

To ship chemicals by air, the exporter of chemicals must apply for the certificate of safe air transportation from relevant authorities. It is regarded as a 6.1 type of dangerous goods. You need suppliers who can handle the proper shipping by air for you.

#3. Whether your supplier has a quality guarantee.

Ask your supplier if they can guarantee their quality, whether they have a full refund or goods-exchange policies for any quality issues. You can add those refund or goods-exchange terms into the sales contract before ordering.

#4. Whether your supplier has any references from their current customers.

A good reference from their current customers will definitely make your supplier more trustworthy.

If you have positive and satisfactory answers from your chemical suppliers, you can go ahead to order from them.

How To Ship And Store Tacrolimus Powder?

#1. How to transport

As it is a very expensive API,  even the quantity for commercial order is in kilos, 10 kilos is a huge order already.

So there are not many shipping options left for its transport: we either ship it by air or by courier.

There is one issue for shipping chemicals by air, the shipper must apply for one copy of the certificate of safe air transportation.

Without it, the airlines or shipping companies will not ship it.

The trick with tacrolimus powder is that it is tested as a 6.1 type dangerous chemical in some cities, where you can only ship it by air through airlines for hazardous goods.

No courier is shipping dangerous chemicals in China’s mainland.

As for the shipping temperature, it is recommended to be shipped at 2~8 degrees celsius.

Though we have shipped samples by normal temperature to some customers and later testing shows quality does not tamper anyway.

Still, we recommend shipping at low temperatures.

#2. How do you store

For long-term storage, it is recommended to be stored in an air-tight container, protected from light and moisture at -20 degrees celsius.

The shelf life at this temperate is 2 years as min. Just make sure to retest it before you use it.
