Research and Development has always been a major element of Oboi's
manufacturing operations. A self-regulating R&D department staffed
by well qualified chemists is involved in a range of research efforts,
ranging from the development of different formulations and the investigation
of new applications for existing products thereby upgrading formulation
effectiveness and improving drug delivery systems.
Oboi in-house manufacturing facility operates a Microbiological
Laboratory, well equipped with the most contemporary facilities,
to conduct the routine and the in-depth microbiological testing,
in order to establish product protocols and to validate sterilization
processes. In-depth tests are operated to assess raw materials,
bulk and finished formulations. In addition there is on-going microbiological
monitoring of working procedures in process areas and microbiological
analysis on products.
Promising opportunities for medical advances will soon be further
explored in a well-equipped R&D Laboratory being developed by
Oboi. The new laboratory services will also be extended in order
to offer research on a contract basis.
