Pharmacolog has received an order for a DrugLog® system from Kronen-Apotheke Marxen, an independent pharmacy in Köln, Germany. The system will be used for final control of chemotherapy and other intravenous drugs prepared at the pharmacy. The agreement is concluded directly with Pharmacolog in Uppsala AB.
Kronen-Apotheke Marxen is an independent pharmacy that prepares chemotherapy and other drugs for delivery to the healthcare system. Unlike other European countries, the principle of wholly independent pharmacies that supply ready-made medicines to the health care system is very common in Germany. There are more than 300 independent so-called Community Pharmacies in Germany that deliver prepared drugs to the healthcare system. They are an important part of the supply chain since only a small part of the German hospitals have their own hospital pharmacies. The deal means that the pharmacy purchases a system directly from Pharmacolog i Uppsala AB. The project is expected to have a minor impact on earnings.
Sales Manager Kent Öbrink comments: “This is a major breakthrough for us as we now receive a first reference customer from an independent pharmacy in Germany. Germany is unique in Europe, as many pharmacies outside the hospital prepare chemotherapy drugs and other parenteral drugs for patients who are under home care. This is a completely new segment for us, and the market is large, around 300 pharmacies being compared to hospital pharmacies in Germany which is around 100. It is very gratifying and exciting that we strengthen our presence in Germany, which is the single largest market in Europe.”
