Vision and mission statement

It is and always has been one of humankind’s biggest endeavors to prolong life by staying healthy, to improve quality of life, reduce child mortality and the number of terminal illnesses.


After many years of working in this industry with its unbelievable options, we started discovering weak points in the manufacturing and logistics processes. On a regular basis, entire shipments of vital and high-quality substances become useless due to faulty containers, contamination, disruptions of the cold chain, or simply because of inappropriate handling.

We have taken up the massive challenge to devise and implement an entire process for a globally organized industry, to make it ready for market – in short: contribute our part in the quest for prolonging life.

In order to achieve our goal, we had to rethink current processes in the pharmaceutical industry and pioneer innovations around single-use technologies. With our game-changing sterile consumables, platform systems and process solutions, we optimize a whole industry by building upon existing and established technology.

Our mission:

“We pioneer innovative solutions around single-use technologies in the Biopharma market to increase patient safety.”

Our vision:

“Improving quality of life and human health by providing entire products & services that eradicate deficiencies in the pharmaceutical liquid transfer.”

„It was no longer tolerable for me that some of the biggest pharmaceutical players on the globe could not solve obvious problems by their own efforts. This developed into an ever-growing challenge to find solutions ourselves.”
