UNPARALLELED REGULATORY INSPECTIONS RECORD
Chlorhexidine salts have a very wide range of antimicrobial activity, being effective against gram-positive and gram-negative organisms. They also have fungicidal and sporicidal effects.
The main features of Chlorhexidine salts are the very low content of impurities particularly p-Chloroaniline and the consistent quality. This can only be achieved by a very careful and advanced process, carried out according to Good Manufacturing Practices and to a Quality Management System in our FDA inspected factory. Since July 2001 Medichem has also been certified according to the ISO 14001 Environmental Management System.
