An active substance has a long way to go before it becomes a drug. Not until formulation are the excipients added and a drug form developed. The result is the optimum formulation with respect to the desired bioavailability of the active substance. Excipients and active pharmaceutical ingredients from EMD for use in drugs meet all the declared pharmacopeial specifications. We produce them taking pharmaceutical aspects into account and document these. With Emprove®, EMD is taking a further step towards full service from safe production to quality control.
