COVID 19 Price Notification

Due to a significant increase in demand for some of our sterile injectable product lines during the COVID 19 pandemic, we have found it necessary to reassess our production costs. The price of some of our lines will increase because of a rise in the cost of the active pharmaceutical ingredients and the additional labour required to meet the current demand. We will continue to review these prices over the next weeks and months.
