Our commitment to quality – signed, sealed and delivered

For the safe manufacture of pharmaceutical products there are national and international guidelines that apply to drug products and pharmaceutical production practices. Compliance with these guidelines is regularly verified and certified by the pertinent health agencies. Constant controls assure the quality of our products. We procure the starting materials for our organ extracts from selected audited companies. Moreover, we have also established high standards for environmental protection and occupational health and safety, which are consistently implemented.
