With a turnover of more than one billion Euros, the pharmaceutical industry is the most important investor in the healthcare sector in Saxony-Anhalt. “The unique selling point of our pharmaceutical industry is its willingness to innovate.

The focus will be on the outstanding innovations, interdisciplinary working conditions and research activities in the German state. In addition, 16 other exhibitors from Saxony-Anhalt will be represented at the trade fair.

In addition to solid forms, we are now able to offer small series as liquid fillings. With our high-purity GMP-compliant quality chitosans, we are frequently involved in customer innovations worldwide as well as in the development of new chitosan derivatives,” highlights Katja Richter, Managing Director of Heppe Medical Chitosan GmbH.
