Pharmaceutical compounding gives a prescriber the option to offer a personalized treatment, for example, by prescribing a different form of administration or a different dosage, suitable for the specific needs of a patient.
In 1990, Fagron started supplying pharmaceutical grade raw materials in smaller quantities to pharmacies in the Netherlands. With an increase in the demand and our continuous effort to provide value to the compounding pharmacies, we have expanded the product line with equipment and supplies. Today we support pharmacists worldwide and enable them to provide treatments of the highest quality and safety, while also optimizing the compounding process with our devices and packaging. Our portfolio of essentials includes pharmaceutical raw materials, equipment, and supplies needed to compound medicine in the pharmacy. Equipment and supplies are available worldwide through FagronLab.
Pharmaceutical raw materials
Pharmaceutical compounding involves the creation of non-patent-protected or unregistered pharmaceutical preparations by or at the request of pharmacies and hospitals, based on a doctor’s prescription. The aim is to prepare personalized medicine (that is not commercially available) that meets the specific needs of the patient. Fagron started supplying pharmaceutical-grade raw materials in smaller quantities to pharmacies and hospitals in the Netherlands in 1990. Today, Fagron is active in 30+ countries in EMEA, North America, and Latin America. Pharmaceutical raw materials are sold to pharmacies, hospitals, and the pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, and cosmetic industries.
