In the Spotlight

Made to order

About 100 qualified and experienced employees work at the site. The main product group is parenteral nutrition solutions for home care and dialysis patients; for these, the individual compounding enables a precise response to the patients’ nutritional needs.

 

Support & Accessories

In Germany, total parenteral nutrition (TPN) bags have to be delivered through pharmacies. We provide an advisory service to assist clinicians and pharmacists in drawing up therapy plans. Along with the solutions, customers can order all the equipment needed to administer them. Individually compounded products can be packaged with a range of medical devices for delivery, and with additional standard solutions (vitamins, electrolytes, etc.) needed by the same patient. We can also supply infusion stands, fridges, and electronic infusion pumps.

 

Centre of excellence

Besides its role as a national supplier, Neufahrn is also the leading center of competence for Fresenius Kabi’s international network of nearly 20 compounding centers.

 

Clinical trials

The new development in Neufahrn is our service producing infusion solutions (parenteral nutrition) for clinical trials. If you need a trial of parenteral nutrition compounds, we can handle the entire cycle of producing and supplying the drug to trial centers. In case of  i.v. drugs we can offer the same package without compounding.

The package contents the following steps:

  • Compounding
  • Labelling and blinding
  • Secondary and tertiary packaging
  • Controlled storage
  • Management of retain samples
  • Controlled shipment to national and international trial centers
  • Management of all investigational medicinal products returned from trial sites

Naturally, these processes are all done in compliance with the relevant national and international guidelines.

 

Quality

The plant is licensed by the competent authority for aseptic manufacturing of parenteral nutrition according to GMP guidelines and the German Drug Law (AMG). An additional license that covers the process of handling (without conpompounding) drug products for clinical trials was granted in 2010. The plant is also certified under DIN ISO 9001 by the TÜV Süd Management Service.
