Piab in the pharmaceutical industry

Pharmaceutical

The pharmaceutical industry produces preparations, antibiotics, vitamins, and hormone preparations in ampules, tablets, capsules, pills, and suppositories, as well as ointments, emulsions, aerosols, and plasters. There are exceptionally high demands of the quality of production—for chemical purity and for sterility. The industry is strongly regulated through GMP, FDA and must comply with a number of global and local regulations.
